Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies

Helping you understand, create, and characterize nanomaterials

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cell Culture Facilities

Grow and maintain prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells

Explore a wide variety of nanoengineered substrates, nano-probes (e.g., quantum dots), and nanoscale imaging techniques for the study of physiological cell behaviors. CINT has the capabilities to grow and maintain prokaryotic (i.e., bacterial) and eukaryotic (e.g., fungal) cells and mammalian cell lines, as well as tissues.
Capabilities include:
