Centre for biological characterisation of biomaterials

Centro de caracterización biológica de biomateriales

Our centre focuses on biologically assessing biomaterials and medical devices. To do so, we have a cell culture room and a biotechnology and microbiology laboratory.


The laboratory has the following equipment:

  • Laminar flow hoods
  • Autoclaves.
  • Incubators and climatic chamber.
  • Refrigerators, freezers and deep-freezers (-80ºC)
  • Precision balance.
  • UV-visible spectrophotometer.
  • Fluorescence spectrophotometer
  • UV, fluorescence and luminescence micro plate reader.
  • Manual colony counter.
  • Semi-automatic coagulometer.
  • Biofilm formation reactor.
  • Automatic liquid dispenser.
  • Chemical extraction hood.
  • Filler, cryostat and microtome to prepare histological samples.

The cell culture room is a class 100,000 clean room and has the following equipment:

  • Laminar flow hood and biosafety hood.
  • Incubators with CO2 control.
  • Autoclave.
  • Refrigerated centrifuge.
  • PCR thermal cycler.
  • Vertical and horizontal electrophoresis.
  • Transilluminator.
  • Inverted microscope.
  • Fluorescence microscope.

Aimed at:

  • Companies.
  • Universities.
  • Research centres.
