|IZTECH BIOMER acts as a developed central laboratory under the university President. Its infrastructure was started in 2007 and was completed successfully in 2009 with a project by SPO. It’s a complex which involves 9 laboratories serving in a total area of 580 m2. These labs are: 1) Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Genetics Laboratory 2) Instrumental Analysis Laboratory-1 3) Instrumental Laboratory-2 4) Fermentation Technology Laboratory 5) Cell Culture Laboratory 6) Preparation Laboratory 7) Genetic Analysis Laboratory 8) Microbiology Laboratory (Clean Room) 9) Liquid Nitrogen Production Unit.|
Where possible, these laboratories are open to all bio-basis works. However, its primary goal is to provide research infrastructure support to both scientific projects in the fields of genomics, industrial biotechnology, biomedical and bioengineering, and to the studies of postgraduates and PhDs.
In BIOMER two types of services are provided by 2 faculty members, 3 experts and 1 technical staff. The first of these is “using device”. Users come to the laboratory with their samples or prepare their samples within the laboratory and measure them with a specific device. The second one is “work package” service. Users perform a particular experiment from the beginning to the end. The necessary equipment and supplies during the experiment as well as the training and consulting services are included in “work package”. Many of the device using services are free of charge; but for the devices requiring high-cost maintenance, and for the consumable items, users are charged with a symbolic basic fee without any profit. All devices and mechanisms are subject to internal and external users, with an appointment in advance.
BIOMER gives scientific consultation and research infrastructure services to projects carried out by R&D centers of private sectors and public institutions. Beside this, BIOMER is willing to serve throughout the country.
