Equipment Wish List


Current Wish List

This year we have been asked by the research team to supply a  Capillary fragment analyser. It is a device that will allow them to rapidly and simultaneously assess the quality of biological material that we isolate from hundreds of individual single cancer cells before doing complex and expensive downstream experiments. It’s basically a very big time saver (saving them  hundreds of man-hours per annum)

We need to raise this year £32,700. 00 so we ask that as normal to reserve your place you send a cheque to Cure cancer at ucl to 1 Aylmer Close, Stanmore, Middx. HA7 3EQ

Special Thanks

Cure Cancer @ UCL want to take this opportunity to give a special thank you to MidMeds () a key supporter of the charity who helps source and purchase the equipment needed at trade prices saving the charity thousands of pounds enabling us to make the money raised go further.

Fulfilled Wish Lists

• Quantum Analyzer purchased with donations, now up and running!

• Fragment Analyzer 96: Once we have collected the cells, we face the problem of checking the quality of the DNA in each before proceeding to detailed analysis. If the quality of DNA in any individual cell is not up to scratch, there’s no point in analysing it further and it is discarded. This quality control process is normally laborious and time consuming, but the Fragment Analyser allows us to rapidly check 96 single cells at a time, thereby saving hundreds of man-hours per year, and freeing up our scientists to work on other things.

• Bioanalyzer. A machine that can measure tiny amounts of DNA, RNA and proteins isolated from cancer cells.
