The Pharmaceutical Sciences Instrumentation Facility is available to all School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences faculty. It connects to faculty laboratories, conference rooms, glass washing room and walk-in cold room.
The facility serves a variety of research projects. A major focus and area of local expertise is the analysis of biological and artificial lipid bilayer membranes (liposomes). DSC is particularly useful in the investigation of small-molecule/membrane interactions. TGA can be used to detect residual solvent in amorphous and crystalline solids, and to characterize some polymorphic states such as solvates.
