The wet laboratory is a highly specialized laboratory, equipped to work with live marine invertebrates. This laboratory has closed ocean water circulation systems through solids, biological and UV filtration, as well as water temperature control through titanium heat exchangers. Furthermore, the laboratory has different size aquariums and fiber glass containers and all analytical instruments to evaluate water quality.
The physiology laboratory is fully equipped to evaluate physiological functions, as well as total ammonia excretion rates through very sensitive methodologies, such as the Flow Injection Analysis. The laboratory also has the entire analytical equipment and glassware required for the analysis of different metabolites.
