UPRM Soft Matter Collective

 Soft matter is an interdisciplinary field that includes disciplines such as Engineering, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Materials Science, and Mathematics. A particular area of interest to the UPRM Soft Matter Collective is the understanding of how the deformation of materials with multifunctional and/or reconfigurable properties correlates to their fundamental composition and structure. This effort is key to…

BioRad Bio-Plex 200

This instrument is a high throughput ELISA that enables multiplexed fluorescent detection and quantification of proteins from a single sample. The system has a high throughput fluidics to assay up to 100 analytes per sample and a total of 96 samples in a single run. Principal Custodian: Madeline Torres Lugo Custodians: Maribella Domenech Garcia

Thermal Evaporator

This instrument uses a resistive heating component to impart high temperatures to different source materials, causing them to reach melting point and create a vapor which is later condensed into a given substrate. This method is called “physical vapor deposition” and consists in the placement of films of pure compounds in different substrates. The deposition…
