ANON POST: Modern day clinical lab equipment?

My main character is a doctoral researcher at a very well-funded private clinical lab (I don't have a medical specialization for her yet, in part because of the question I have, but it would be something biochemical based) in a contemporary setting. I'm having the hardest time figuring out what kind of equipment would be present (cold rooms? TEM microscopes?), and what could best be used for nefarious purposes (in other words if there was someone trying murder the protagonist in a dramatic fashion without resorting to the usual 'needle stick with deadly disease', what would make sense?).

I've looked all over Google, most major university clinical lab pages known for their clinical research, well known research companies like Abbott or Genzyme, and Wiki. I also tried searching through different lab equipment websites, but these aren't the kinds of items I think are normally bought without a lot of funding. Help would be really appreciated.
