BMBIC Shared Instrumentation
Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Instrument Calendar
The BMBIC was developed with the vision that it would serve as a central location for shared instrumentation serving the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology including the northeast quadrant of the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus. The BMBIC provides a molecular signaling, imaging and structual biology support services and is used by the eighteen faculty members who have laboratories in the Biomedical Research Facility (BRF) building and faculty from other surrounding facilities who have signaling, imaging and structural biology equipment needs. The core currently houses real-time PCR, In-incubator Microscope, scintillation counter, stopped flow equipment, thermal cyclers, rapid chemical-quench-flow instrumentation, confocal microscopes, epiflurescence microscopy, HPLC, FPLC, ultracentrifugation equipment, cell culture incubators and imaging equipment, etc. The BMBIC is a proven and necessary asset to BRF faculty and other investigators located in the northeast corner of the University of Maryland Baltimore campus.

Olympus Viva-View Incubator Microscope
The Olympus Viva-View Incubator Microscope with Liquid Handing Option is located on the 1st floor of the Biomedical Research Facility (BRF), 108 N. Greene Street, in room 120. This equipment is managed by Dr. Martin Schneider.
The equipment purchase was supported by the National Instututes of Health through an award (1S10026380) that was issued under the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR). It is also supported in part by the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
ALBA Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscope
The ALBA Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscope (FLIM) by ISS is located in the Center of Fluorescence, 725 West Lombard Street in the University Medical Biotechnology Center Building on the second floor, room N-260. The Center of Fluorescence, under the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is directed by Dr. Joseph Lakowicz.
The equipment purchase was supported by the National Institutes of Health through an award (1S10RR026370) that was issued under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). It is also supported in part by the University of Maryland Schoold of Medicine and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
