SYRINGE PUMP

Wagoner Johnson Lab

Our lab owns this Fusion 200 Two-Channel Syringe Pump for cervix inflation and testing. The device was donated to the lab by Chemyx. To read more about this, click here.

EXTRUSION PRINTER

Mechanical Engineering Labs

We use a custom built extrusion printer for fabrication of 3D printed bone scaffolds.

XRADIA MICROXCT-400

Beckman Institute

The Wagoner Johnson lab uses the Xradia Bio MicroCT (MicroXCT-400) to image bone scaffold samples for assessing bone growth post-animal implantation. This machine is a 3D X-ray system capable of imaging samples up to 15kg and can achieve a resolution of under 1.0 micron.

X-RAY DIFFRACTION SYSTEM

Materials Research Labs

We use the Bruker D8 Advance XRD System with High-Temperature Sample Stage available at the MRL to identify the presence of different materials and their phases in the products we manufacture. We use it for our bone scaffolds and coral reef research. To learn more about the device, click here.

SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE

Materials Research Labs

We use the Hitachi S-4700 High Resolution SEM for our coral reefs research and the JEOL JSM-6060LV Low-Vacuum Scanning electron microscope for our bone scaffolds research. To learn more about Hitachi SEM, click here. To learn more about the JEOL SEM, click here.

LASER SCANNING MICROSCOPE

Materials Research Labs

We use the Keyence VK-X1000 3D Laser scanning microscope to measure the surface profiles of our coral reef beds with a resolution that goes as small as 20 nm. To learn more about the microscope, click here.
