Scanning probe microscopy: We have a beautiful JPK Nanowizard II Ultra capable of operation in a resolution-optimized standalone mode with top-view optics or on a Zeiss inverted optical microscope
with Colibri fluorescence light source for maximal flexibility in
correlation to phase contrast or fluorescence microscopy. These are
located in a newly renovated low vibration sub-basement facility, all
thanks to CFI and the Nova Scotia Research & Innovation Trust. Fluorescence spectroscopy: A PTI QuantaMaster 4 spectrofluorometer
(angle 2, angle 3)with steady-state anisotropy measurement, stopped-flow and
planar-supported sample analysis capabilities arrived in late
2008, thanks to NSERC. Thanks to Peter Murphy for the photos!
CD spectroscopy: We have our choice of two Jasco J-810's, thanks to Drs. Bearne and Waisman.
Mass spectrometry: We use ESI mass spectrometers thanks to Drs. Byers and Jakeman and a MALDI-TOF MS at the NRC-IMB.
