The European University Cyprus has developed state of the art wet as well as dry laboratories for the courses of Medical Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Histology, Physiology, Pathology and Anatomy as well as amphitheatric lecture rooms. Our laboratories are probably the best and safest laboratories in Cyprus.
Medical Biochemistry, Cell And Molecular Biology Laboratories
They are modern, new generation, state of the art laboratories in line with the international laboratory-safety and operating guidelines. They feature personal scientific drawers and lockers for the needs of each one student individually so to gain experience from his own effort; and specifications for multicast functionality as well. All of the scientific equipment are modernized, latest available in the market, state of the art, and in an amount that ensures availability for all students. Additionally, they offer a whole range of machines for practicing cytogenetic techniques, analyses and sophisticated studies on DNA and proteins such as high-pressure liquid chromatography machine, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy equipment, spectrophotometers, centrifuges, vacuum ovens, microscopes, precision scales, automatic pipettes for each student, pH meters, evaporators under reduced pressure, water deionizers, vacuum chambers, refrigerators, ice machine and dry ice storage unit are friendly to the environment and they comply with all environmental requirements, collection and disposal of hazardous / toxic chemicals and are ready to accept students for high level studies in all relevant disciplines that require courses in Medical biochemistry, chemistry, biology microbiology and human genetics.
There are amphitheatric classrooms with dual high definition projectors and with the capability for inter-communication between all rooms within the school premises. The rooms have the ability to be directly connected electronically (both audio and visual) with the microscopy laboratories and specifically with the microscopes, for training from anywhere within the school. Each room is equipped with a 360o camera with fine close focusing and ability to record the running courses in case there is an interest from students to repeat previous teachings or a need for intercom between lectures.
A state of the art computer room/laboratory could not be missing from such quality institution and even most with a set-up of one PC per student.
This room can also be used for teaching, providing projection equipment and telecommunication abilities throughout the school. The Computer software programs are all high quality, three-dimensional simulations with viewable virtual reality scenarios for courses like Histology, Physiology and Anatomy. The collection of software is completed with a training program for designing biomedical cellular shapes, molecules and images in publishable quality.
The conference room is fully equipped for electronic conferencing with the entire planet. The high-definition cameras and telecommunication systems can overcome the barriers of distance and bearing an online discussion seems like a simple task within the School premises.
The simulation rooms are observation amphitheater rooms for virtual monitoring and teaching scenarios in robotic models with parameters based on facts. There is the ability to set-up scenarios and cases of cardiac, respiratory, postoperative, gastrointestinal, neurological and other disorders with simultaneous observation and monitoring of the progress of the diseases evolution through all necessary machinery; continuously monitoring and recording of data. There are two adult simulation rooms and one for juveniles and infants (Simbaby), all as a part of an independent observation amphitheatric room. The medical scenarios are simulated according to the needs of the courses, even to the most difficult cases. Robot models have tremendous capabilities for a perfect and complete training of the students. They can incredibly imitate symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, vomiting, tachycardia, fever etc. And all these prior to student exposure to hospital and patient contact.
Histology & Microscopy Laboratory
The School features a Histology laboratory with a dark room for fluorescence microscopy wth state of the art and high-quality educational microscopes (one per two students). It features a multi-head high resolution light microscope and an inverter microscope available at the moment only in three centers in the world; one in NASA, the second is located at Harvard in Boston, USA and the third one is in our medical school. There is the ability to display/project live microscopy within the histology lab-room, in high resolution, as well as in any other place within the school or even outside the school. The laboratory features telecommunication systems as all the other halls and a 3600 camera for video recording.
Additionally, there are two multi- thematic workshops for courses and workshops rooms such as embryology or first aid that can also be used for any other immediate need of room expansion of courses such as physiology, anatomy, or else. Dummies, human limbs and organs are countless and quantitatively capable to meet any need of faculty and of student’s training. These two rooms feature all supplies and electronic means to simulate all the other rooms of the school. The school premises are complemented by three incident discussion halls, for switching medical scenarios / cases, with a capacity up to 12 students.
Small groups of students will ensure immediacy and complete evaluation and learning of all students without exception. Each one of the rooms feature video recording and telecommunication systems.
The School of Medicine of the European University Cyprus also features a space that simulates a hospital ward in global standards and fully equipped with machines and simulators for every kind of illness and emergency. There are multiple simulations and scenarios like the need of placement of ventilators, parenteral nutrition feeding and amputations. Someone can come phase to phase with tracheotomy cases, cancer incidence and of infant monitoring and scrutiny. Medical scenarios can be taught according to pre-planning and the needs of learning.
