A laboratory will be vital to your biology studies, seeing that you will be doing practicals during the lessons and your own research. Aeres University of Applied Sciences Almere has a large laboratory in which you will be able to carry out most of the biological research at UAS level.
Besides standard laboratory apparatus, such as microscopes, precision scales, microscope preparations and a microcentrifuge, we also have more advanced apparatus, such as:
- A PCR machine for DNA analysis
- Laminar flow cabinets for carrying out sterile activities
- Apparatus for analyzing water quality with
- Cell culture rooms
Biologists very often work with plants and plant matter. A special place is needed to make cultures or do research. Aeres University of Applied Sciences has an indoor cell culture room where we do our plant experiments. In our cell culture rooms, we have ebb and flow tables, assimilation lighting and a watering system. Also, we use insect cages for making cell cultures and for carrying out experiments with (flying) insects.
