  • In vitro (cell cultures) 
  • Phantoms

Core equipment includes:

  • Transducers: 8 single-element transducers (0.5, 1, 5, and 7.5 MHz), A linear imaging array
  • Signal generators, power amplifiers, filters, scopes, etc.
  • Microbubble manufacturing facilities
  • Microscope
  • Experimental water tanks
  • Basic life sciences equipment
Focused ultrasound equipment.

Focused ultrasound equipment.

We work closely with Dr. Mengxing Tang's Ultrasound Imaging Group who has built state-of-the-art facilities in ultrasound imaging.

Department Facilities

We also have access to all shared Department facilities including:

  • Histology Room
  • Tissue Culture Room
  • Microscopy Suite (including confocal microscopy) 
  • Electronics Workshop
  • Machine Workshop
