The University of Sydney and Agilent Technologies have formally opened their state-of-the-art Oxidative Stress Bioanalytical Facility (OSBF) in the Medical Foundation Building.

The OSBF, funded in part by an ARC LIEF grant with Agilent as the commercial partner, is expected to provide a state-of-the-art facility at the University of Sydney for researchers to develop cutting-edge technology and unique local skills, create a platform for major national and international research collaborations and enable Australia to maintain a leading position in Redox-related research in biology and medicine.

“We’re extremely pleased to have this unique opportunity to partner with Agilent Technologies to establish this world-class facility that places us at the forefront of Redox-related research on a worldwide level,” said Professor Roland Stocker, founder of the Bosch OSBF. “This facility will also allow us to complement and integrate with existing facilities in this area of research in Australia.”

“The Bosch OSBF is unique in the world and it provides our researchers with a powerful platform to advance our understanding of the many diseases we study,” said Professor Jonathan Stone, the Executive Director of the Bosch Institute. “In addition, the lab has been equipped with the new Agilent 1290 HPLC coupled with the Agilent 6460 Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, which will further Redox-related research.”
