Laboratories & Facilities

1-       Air Pollution Laboratory Equipments


Leland Legacy 5 to 15 L/min:


Applications: The personal-size Leland Legacy® air sampling pump offers flows from 5 to 15 L/min, PC-programmability, and up to 24-hour run times for personal or area sampling of low-level contaminants. The pump is ideal for use with impactors, low-volume PUF tubes, filter cassettes, and spore traps.


MicroFlow™ Microbiological Air Sampler:


Applications: The Microbiological Air Sampler is used for sampling biocontaminants (bacteria, molds, spores, fungi, pollen, etc.) in any production or environmentally controlled area. MicroFlow™ allows to verify & quantify microorganism presence.




High Volume Air Samplers:


Applications: High volume air samplers are used for the collection of airborne particulate matter in ambient air.  They are available for the collection of Total Suspended particulates (TSP), particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 10µm (PM10), particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 2.5µm (PM2.5), and semi-volatile organic compounds and pesticides (PUF).


Portable Laser Aerosolspectrometer and dust monitor model 1.109:




Universal PCXR45 to 5000 ml/min:


Applications: The Universal PCXR4 personal or area air sampling pump features a 5 to 5000 ml/min flow range, timer, flow fault, and up to 12-hour run times for sampling particulates and gases/vapors. The pump is ideal for use with sorbent tubes, filter cassettes, size-selective samplers, sample bags, and impingers.


2-       Chemistry Laboratory Equipments


High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC):


Applications: High-performance liquid chromatography, is used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture.HPLC has been used for manufacturing (e.g. during the production process of pharmaceutical and biological products), research (e.g. separating the components of a complex biological sample, or of similar synthetic chemicals from each other), and medical (e.g. detecting vitamin D levels in blood serum) purposes, and detecting different components in environmental (water, wastewater, air).




Ion Chromatography (IC) (Metrohm, 850 professional IC):


Applications: It is often used in protein purification, water and wastewater analysis, and quality control.


Polarograph (Metrohm, 797 VA computrace):


Applications: The majority of the chemical elements can be identified by polarographic analysis. Polarography is also used to identify numerous types of organic compounds and to study chemical equilibria and rates of reactions in solutions and can measure metals as much as ppm and ppb by voltammetry.





Spectrophotometer DR 5000:


Applications: A spectrophotometer is commonly used for the measurement of transmittance or reflectance of solutions, transparent or opaque solids, such as polished glass, or gases.


3-      Microbiology Laboratory Equipments



Centrifuge, Universal , American: 


Applications: One of the medical diagnostic laboratories that uses its motor power to separate and separate substances in solutions in a liquid. Like serum and plasma.




Microscope, Germany,   Zeiss:          



Applications:Observation of microorganisms by a factor called separation


Oven, Germany, Memert:      



Applications: For the sterilization of tools and devices resistant to heat, including glass plates, pipettes, test tubes, dental instruments.


Laminar Flow, Jal Takhiz - Model JTLVC2: 


Application:  A chamber-like device with movable glass and a vent and lighting system, some of which contain a UV lamp to sterilize indoor air when working with microbial agents and cultivated environments. This compartment also has a lamp and a tap and a flame.

pH Meter,   Swiss, Metrohm 827:


Applications: To measure the acidity or fluidity of the liquids.


Freezer _80 °C, Italy, KW:



 Applications: Laboratory freezer is referred to as a chamber that is used to measure, monitor and maintain the test specimen at a temperature below zero.


Cooling shaker incubator, Jal Takhiz - Model JTSL20:  




Applications: Providing a suitable temperature for growth as well as to stir the culture medium. 


Water bath, Germany, Memert:



Applications: As a fertilizing medium, as well as melting cultivation environments.







Applications: Sterilize all laboratory and culture media before use and microbial culture media, etc. by wet heat.


Incubator, Germany, Memert:


Applications: Providing the moisture and heat needed to grow bacteria after the cultivation.
