View a range of biomedical microgravity research experiments performed in NanoLabs on the International Space Station in low earth orbit – including NanoRacks’ internal payload customers studying symbiotic nodulation, microbial growth and fluorescent polarization, to name a few.

Fluorescent Polarization

Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute’s Fluorescent Polarization in Microgravity (NanoRacks-Micro-gRx) research examines microgravity’s effect on fluorescent polarization, which paves the way for advanced biology research and drug development in space.

Customer: Sanford Burnham Research Institute
Research: Fluorescent Polarization
NanoRacks Facility: NanoRacks Plate Reader

Symbiotic Nodulation

SyNRGE3 (Symbiotic Nodulation in a Reduced Gravity Environment-Cubed) investigates the effect of microgravity on the cell-to-cell signaling and nodule formation between a host plant and symbiotic bacteria.

Customer: Limerick Institute of Technology
Research: Symbiotic Nodulation in Microgravity
NanoRacks Facility: NanoLab Platform
Mission Duration: 09/2014 – 03/2013
Mission Status: In…

Microbial Growth

The University of California Comparison of the Growth Rate and DNA Characterization of Microgravity Exposed Microbial Community Samples (MERCCURI) compares how various microbial communities grow on the ground and in microgravity.

Customer: University of California
Research: Microbial Growth
NanoRacks Facility: NanoRacks Plate Reader
Mission Duration: 03/2014 – 09/2014

Protein Crystal Growth

PCG-1 uses different protein crystal growth solutions in small crystal slides to grow protein crystals in microgravity. The slides are launched frozen, thawed on orbit to allow crystal growth, examined while on-orbit and then returned.

Customer Name: The Methodist Hospital Research Institute
Research: Protein Crystal Growth
NanoRacks Facility: NanoLab Platform
Mission Duration: 09/2012 –…
