Biosciences Laboratories

These laboratories are used to teach multiple science subjects including physiology, pharmacology, pharmacy, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell culture, nutrition, microbiology and other related subjects.

Although the laboratories are used for different subjects, they contain specialist scientific equipment to aid teaching and research. We have all the specialist equipment needed to train and educate our students. As well as giving them current and relevant experience in using the equipment they will see and use in their chosen professions.

We have a human patient simulator called IStan which is a breathing, talking, advanced mannequin used to teach undergraduate students and like most of our equipment is of a professional industry standard.

We have histological equipment to the same high standard as used in hospital pathology laboratories, research grade microscopes and cell culture suites allowing our students to get hands on experience growing mammalian cells.

Dedicated microbiology laboratories and aseptic suites used for teaching and training future pharmacists, specialist nutrition analysis equipment, hospital clinical analyzers, and research grade plate assay readers.
