Ultracentrifuge for virological and cell biological applications. Ghent University
With the present project proposal, an ultracentrifuge is requested by different departments from the Faculty Veterinary Medicine (FVM). The ultracentrifuge will be used to concentrate/purify virus particles/subcellular fractions/extracellular vesicles for different molecular characterizations. At present, there is one ultracentrifuge of 20 years old at the FVM with several defects and rotors of 30-40 years old that are dangerous in use.
