We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Kyla McCullough Gift Fund who have made a generous gift of a vital instrument to Pediatric Cancer Biology Program laboratories. This NanoDrop Spectrophotometer (pictured in the left bottom corner) is a special type of instrument uses sparingly small amounts of our experimental samples to measure the concentration of DNA and RNA that the samples contain. This spectrophotometer will be used by multiple laboratories very often - approximately 7–10 researchers each day. A placard on the instrument reads:
