Biotechnology Facilities at the University of Arizona
The following information summarizes the facilities present on the campus of the University of Arizona, including the Arizona Health Sciences Center, that can be made available to BMCB researchers in either a pay-for-service, collaborative, or gratis arrangement.
A web site provided by Arizona Health Sciences Center identifies
many Research Facilities within the University of Arizona. http://www.medicalresearch.arizona.edu/coreservices.cfm
Those that are pertinent to BMCB are included in the list below, as well as some that are not bona fide services, but are available by the good graces of the PI.
The Facility directors I spoke with suggested that a consultation regarding your models and goals before collecting experimental samples would help determine the most appropriate procedure to optimize results.
