Pharmacology Laboratories
Brief Description
Pharmacology Laboratories are one of the most important laboratories at the school of medicine in the University of Jordan. It contains very important and advance instruments for teaching the graduate students and researchers for different scientific fields. Pharmacology Laboratories include three main laboratories:
Analytical pharmacology laboratory, Molecular Pharmacology (Pharmacogenomics) laboratory and Cell culture laboratory.
Analytical pharmacology laboratory
It contains a number of important chromatographic instruments that assist graduate students and researchers in analyzing samples.The most important of that instrument are HPLC and GC, which are used to identify the drugs and determine its amount in different samples such as in biological or pharmaceutical form.

Molecular Pharmacology (Pharmacogenomics) laboratory
It analyze and responds to pharmacological activity by detecting drug responding mutations (Point mutation “SNPs”) at patient genes by using several devices, the most important of which is qPCR (real time PCR), Conventional PCR, electrophoresisetc…..
Cell culture laboratory
It contains a number of important devices that assist students and researchers in studying the effect of drugs on cells, especially cancerous ones, through the use of modern technologies such as MTT, Migration and Invasion assays using important devices such as type II laminar flow cabinet, co2 incubator etc….
The Human Physiology Laboratory seeks to understand the mechanisms that work to keep the human body alive and functioning by studying the composition of each human structure, the development of these structures, the physical relationships between them, and the relationship between structure and function. The Physiology laboratory at the Faculty of Medicine isa teaching laboratoryand provides services for undergraduates students. It covers the practical sessions of: Hematolymphoid, Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Gastrointestinal,Muscuskeletal and Nervoussystems for second and third, Medical students and Dental students.
Main Equipment

 Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM):
General Information:
TEM is the abbreviation of transmission electron microscope technique in which a beam of electrons, accelerated from a tungsten filament, is focused on a sample, and the transmitted electrons are focused into an image. "Electron dense" areas of the sample (often made dense by staining techniques) scatter electrons, leading to dark areas in the image. The image itself, being made up of electrons, is invisible to the eye, so it is visualized by projection onto a fluorescent screen, which emits light when it is struck by electrons. For permanent records, photographic film, which is exposed by electrons, is used in place of the screen.
In the TEM Unit We provide advice and centralized training to both academic staff and research students in the preparation of specimens and the operation of the microscopes, the principal users of the TEMU facilities come from the faculties of (agriculture, pharmacy, medicine and science), The Electron Microscope Unit also provides facilities for a range of external organizations such as private and governmental hospitals.
If you are a researcher or student from a university or research institute and would like to use our facilities, please contact the EM unit's staff to provide you with the required information and discuss your project details.
TEM Application:
A Transmission Electron Microscope is ideal for a number of different fields such as life sciences, nanotechnology, medical, biological and material research, forensic analysis and education.
Different samples can be analyzed at our TEMU such as biological tissues and biopsies, plants, Bacteria and viruses, cell suspensions, polymers, oil emulsions, gold and silver nanoparticles, Nano fibers and others.
Pathology lab:
Pathology lab provide expert assistance for students and researchers in the field of light microscopy and Microtechniques, such as processing and sectioning of different tissue sample, in addition for applying different staining technique.
We also provide training on all the equipment and procedures in our laboratory.
