Special buildings at Millsaps include the Lewis Art Gallery and the James Observatory. Millsaps also provides students with access to many types of special equipment in teaching laboratories and research facilities as outlined below. Chemistry students may use a Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FTIR), an atomic absorption spectrophotometer, a GC/Mass spectrometer, a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, a high performance liquid chromatograph, a computer-based gel electrophoreses instrument, a capillary electrophoresis, research grade gas chromatographs, a fluorescence spectrophotometer, an ultraviolet/visible spectrophotometer, a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer (NMR), an inert atmosphere reaction chamber, a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, microscale and preparative gas chromatographs (GC/MS), a UV-VIS spectrophotometer, and a Dispersive IR Spectrophotometer. The Biology Department includes a state-of-the-art cancer biology/biomolecular sciences research laboratory which contains two MyCycler thermal cyclers, an MG Research RT-PCR thermal cycler, a FluorChem gel imaging and analysis system, an Experion analysis system, a Nano-drop spectrophotometer, a Bio-Rad electroporator, a Kendro high-speed centrifuge, several Eppendorf microfuges, a Stratalinker, Western blotting equipment, large capacity incubators and shaking incubators, ultralow freezers, and several systems for agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The Microscopic Imaging Facility contains a JEOL scanning electron microscope, a Leica DIC/fluorescence microscope, and a Zeiss Axioimager microscopy system with CoolSnapII HQ camera and imaging software. The Cell Culture Facility houses a laminar flow hood and CO2 incubators for culture and manipulation of cell lines.Geology equipment available to students includes an X-ray diffractometer (Scintag XDS 2000), a Nikon Microphot-FX polarizing microscope, an MEQ-800 earthquake seismograph, a GIS workstation with Rockware and Arcview 9.1 GIS Software, a Sokkia Set 600 Total Stations survey instrument, Solinst digital pressure transducers, and an on-campus hydrogeologic monitoring station to measure the water table and water levels in four on-campus wells. Geology students can use the department???s GeoStuff BHG-3 downhole seismic equipment and Reelogger down-hole data logger to explore the 120 meter-deep on-campus test hole. Equipment in the Millsaps College Environmental and Engineering Geophysics Lab includes 12- and 24-channel engineering seismographs (BISON 5012 and Seistronix RAS-24), a seismic data processing workstation, a PulseEKKO Pro ground penetrating radar system, a Worden gravity meter, and a Geometrics G 816 magnetometer. The campus is also home to the Millsaps College Sorbent and Environmental Laboratory which provides oil spill and stormwater remediation research opportunities to undergraduates. Psychology lab equipment includes a specially-designed automated 24-hour food monitoring system for rats, a Taste Threshold Apparatus for rodents, and a microsurgical lab for animal surgeries. Millsaps students also have access to special student-assigned research lab/offices; a computational modeling lab for math, chemistry and physics students which provides numerical and graphical solutions in three dimensions; a special lab for archeological analysis; and a large-scale professional poster machine for research presentations. In fall 2005, language students will have access to a newly-renovated digital language lab with 25 network computers and satellite connections for foreign language programming.
