SUPPORTING FACILITIES 



The Public Instrument Center
The center accommodates most of GIBH’s instruments, worth a total of 55 million RMB. Instruments include Flow Cytometer, Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope, High Content Screening System, DNA/RNA Synthesizer, Peptide Synthesizer, Biomolecular Interaction Analysis, X-ray Diffractometer, 400MHz and 500MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer, Liquid Chromatogram-Mass spectrometry, Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer, high performance centrifugal machines, and PCR Amplifiers. The center opens its service externally after the internal demands are met.

The total value of the instruments at GIBH is worth 110 million RMB, among which there are 91 instruments valued at over 200,000 RMB. 



The laboratory Animal Centre
The centre aims to build a leading platform of laboratory animals by observing the stringent quality control and standard operating procedures in order to perform high quality animal experiments. The center covers an area of 4,400 square meters and provides GIBH research teams with standardized animals, reliable facilities which assist research teams to complete related experiments.

The centre, which is run entirely by ALLAC standards, goes for ALLAC verification and has obtained the certification of qualified laboratory animal facilities and the license for using laboratory animal issued by Guangdong Laboratory Animal monitoring Institute. Recently, the centre has become the largest standard laboratory animal centre in Guangdong Province which has established stable collaborating relationships with the Guangdong Laboratory Animal Monitoring Institute, Shanghai Laboratory Animal Centre of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and many colleges and universities in the Guangdong area.
