Our fully equipped chemistry laboratory has specialised chromatography and spectrophotometry equipment used in biotechnology applications.
There is also a touch screen analyser for 'point of care' blood testing and an autoanalyser that can perform a wide range of biochemical tests.
Our PC2 containment laboratory is used for microbiology, tissue culture, and molecular biology work. In addition to essential microbiology equipment, it contains three biosafety cabinets and equipment for the isolation, purification and manipulation of DNA.
There is also a digital fluorescence imaging system for examination of a wide range of cells and tissues.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
