Technical Resources

The technical focus of the lab is carbon and nitrogen metabolism. Therefore most of the resources and techniques in the lab center on the measurement of physiological and biochemical markers for carbon and nitrogen status.  These range from the measurement of photosynthetic parameters using the LI-COR LI-6400XT Portable Photosynthesis and Fluorescence System, to high throughput analysis of metabolites and enzyme activities using liquid handling robots. 

Freezer Protection

Lesson learned from Hurricane Sandy. Our two -80C freezers are now powered by circuits that are protected with emergency backup power generation, and are monitored by the Sensaphone 1400.

Cryogenic shipping

DOE, Office of Science One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit, applied science and technology organization.
