Introduction
The Biomaterial Research Laboratory (BRL) involves research that focused on properties, synthesis and characterization of biomaterials in dental application. We offer services such as imaging, surface texture analyzer, hardness tester, as well as compression and tensile test of dental materials. The laboratory is fully equipped with the latest high technology equipment that are managed by a Laboratory Coordinator, a Science Officer and four very well trained Assistant Science Officers who are experts in operating and maintaining the equipment.
