Re: Bio-Link Equipment Depot
Thank you for providing my program with consumables and equipment from Bio-Link’s Equipment Depot.
The goods that Foothill received will be used in part to benefit two students who are involved in an undergraduate research experience here at the college. These students are learning to investigate the properties of biologically active compounds. They are learning sterile technique, how to mix solutions and pH them, how to recognize a failed attempt at a procedure, and many other basic laboratory techniques. They are becoming proficient with the use of a laminar flow hood, UV spectroscopy, microscopy, and techniques of histology. I am also using the supplies we received for my tissue culture course this quarter.
As you know, one of the factors that limits our abilities to provide students with research experiences is the high cost of consumable items. Thanks to the Bio-Link Equipment Depot I will be able to purchase more reagents, which will greatly enrich my students experiences.
Thank you again, and I look forward to seeing you in the near future.
V. Celeste Carter,
Biotechnology Program Director
