Central Research Laboratories
Since its establishment in 1982, the HKU Faculty of Dentistry has wholeheartedly pursued excellence in dental research. The HKU Faculty of Dentistry operates a ‘centralized’, open-access, set of ‘wet lab’ and ‘dry lab’ research laboratories, which are collectively referred to as the Central Research Laboratories (CRL). The component laboratories of the CRL are located on the 5/F and 7/F of the Prince Philip Dental Hospital. The CRL has a dedicated team of highly-trained technical staff who maintain and operate the CRL facilities/equipment, and aid staff and students with their research activities.
To enable HKU staff and (postgraduate) students who are planning research projects or are applying for grants become more familiar with the items of laboratory equipment available for use in the CRL, a brief description of the functions/specifications of each major piece of research equipment is listed below - in 6 different categories, which may be viewed using the pull-down menu. Details of relevant internet-based resources are listed for the respective items of equipment, along with the name(s) of the technician(s) in charge of their use.
Queries on specific pieces of research equipment should first be directed to the responsible technician(s). General enquiries may also be directed to Ms. Leticia LAW (2859 0480), who can help connect potential users with the relevant technical staff.
