Biology Lab

The Biology Facilities in Beirut campus, consist of two teaching labs and four research labs that are located on the First Floor of Sage Hall. These labs serve both undergraduate and graduate students and are well equipped with sophisticated and modern instrumentation supporting all disciplines of biology.

  1. Teaching Labs

Both Teaching Labs accommodate students majoring in Biology, Nutrition and Pharmacy in addition to Freshman students

Biology Lab (Sage 305)

The equipment within the first Teaching Lab include microscopes, Stereomicroscope, balances, pH meter, water baths & shaking water baths, centrifuges, concentrator, stomacher, trans-illuminator, ice machine, two incubators, Visible & UV- visible spectrophotometers, two autoclaves, different types of electrophoresis setups ( Horizontal and Vertical) and a Dishwater.

Biology Lab (Sage 307)

This second labs contains balances, water bath, pH meter, stirrers, spectrophotometers, 4 fridges, and a microwave. Also within the lab there is a large set of Preserved Animal & Plant specimens as well as Displays for the sophomore labs

 Both labs are equipped with Audio Visual systems, LCD projectors and Internet Access.

  1. Research Labs

There are 4 Biology Research labs in Beirut Campus, also located on the first floor in Sage Hall.
