Teaching Equipment

      The floor space of our department is around 4,500 square meters, including the department office, conference rooms, teaching laboratory, biosafety level 2 plus laboratory, core facilities, cold rooms, and many research laboratories. Each research laboratory occupies around 150 square meters. Since medical technology education is one of the major aims for the department, a well-equipped teaching laboratory has also been established in the department.

      Because the department gives priority to the training of independent experimental skills for each student, the number and variety of devices and instruments is sufficient. For example, the number of microscopes and micropipettes is enough for each student. Therefore, every student can perform the experiment independently. Besides, the students can observe and handle the newest equipment for modern biotechnology in the course of medical technology research. All of the efforts are to ensure that the students in the department are well-educated and trained in their professional knowledge and techniques in modern medical biotechnology, which will certainly support their future careers.

      The equipment in the department is usually supported by the university. Since 2001, the department has also been funded by the special projects from the Ministry of Education of ROC government, including the professional personnel education project in medical technology, the pioneer personnel in molecular diagnosis project, and the special project for stem cell and tissue engineering research.

      The core facilities in the department support the research in molecular medical technology, prevention medicine, cancer biology, the development of medical devices, and infectious diseases.  They are well-equipped and include the following instruments.
