FACILITIES & EQUIPMENT

We have a suite of tools that enables us to characterize the physicochemical properties of aerosols and their toxic impacts using various acellular assays conducted under physiological conditions. Major equipment includes:

  • UV-VIS Spectrometers (incl. Ocean Optics with 10 cm pathlength flow cell)

  • Fluorescence Spectrophotometers (Vernier) 

  • Ozone Generator and Monitor (2B Technologies) 

  • Photoreactor (Luzchem; UVA and UVB)

  • Microwave Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrophotometer (MP-AES, Agilent)

Coming: 

  • Ion Chromatography (cations, anions, including carbohydrates) 

  • Aerosol Monitor (TSI; 0.1 to 15 µm) 

  • Outdoor Integrated Ambient Particulate Sampling System (MetOne)*

*Note that we already have other smaller pieces of equipment/tools that enable aerosol sample generation, collection, and preparation, including PM2.5 and PM10 cyclones, filter holders, tubing, and pumps. 

Departmental/University Instrumentation

W(r)ong group also uses departmental analytical instruments such as High Performance Liquid Chromatrography (HPLC; Agilent), Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS; Agilent). We have also employed the use the Scanning Electro Microscopy (SEM) with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) instrument at the University's Digitial Microscopy facilities.
