Shared Laboratory Devices

 The laboratory devices of the Kitasato Institute for Life Sciences are managed by the management committee of shared laboratory devices.

 These laboratory devices are shared by the teaching staff of the Kitasato Institute for Life Sciences and the teaching staff and students of the Graduate School of Infection Control Sciences. They are also mutually used, mainly in the Shirokane campus, by the teaching staff and graduate students of the Oriental Medicine Research Center, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and other departments.

Network Environment

  • Network Environment for LAN and Wireless LAN
     At the Kitasato Institute for Life Sciences, using LAN (Ethernet), wireless LAN, or Wi-Fi requires registration. It is used by more than 100 users, including the teaching staff, graduate students, research students, and postgraduate students [Bulletin Boards (BBS)]

  • Bulletin Boards (BBS)
     Notifications to the teaching staff, graduate students, and research students are displayed on bulletin boards, such as the "Administrative office", "Network-related", "Committees" "Seminars and lectures", "Graduate students", "Grants-in-aid", and "Library".
    Many application forms can be downloaded from the website.

  • Reservations for Using Shared Laboratory Devices
     Reserving shared laboratory devices is mostly done on the website.
