Julie Critcher



I have worked in CSS (Central Services Section) since 1987. My role has developed so that now I have a bigger input into practical classes, laboratory layout, preparation of bacterial cultures for practicals, insect rearing, stains and reagents, and equipment maintenance.

I am lead Technician for 1st year Introductory Micro practicals and I'm currently applying to the Science Council to be a registered Science Technician.

CSS is located in the Knight Building and provides valuable support for both teaching and research. We process discard for the Knight Building, provide sterile glassware, offer a media preparation service and organise the Microbiology practicals. We also provide support to undergraduate project students and postgraduate students. We maintain two microbiology teaching laboratories and all the equipment associated with them. We are a dedicated team that take pride in what we do and always try to provide a high standard of service.
