Biomolecular Synthesis

Biomolecular Synthesis

The Biomolecular Synthesis Facility provides high quality peptides services ranging from biomolecular synthesis and modifications to high throughput peptide array synthesis (SPOT method) for libraries. The SPOT synthesis is a unique method to generate large numbers of different peptides on cellulose membranes for use in arrays or screening libraries. [details]

Deep Sequencing

Deep Sequencing

The Deep Sequencing Facility offers high quality services for a diversity of Next Generation Sequencing based applications. These include RNA sequencing, especially from ultra-low input down to single cell sequencing, genomic re-sequencing, ChIP sequencing and targeted re-sequencing. Workflows from native samples to final data sets are established both on short read Illumina- and long read PacBio sequencing systems. [details]

Electron Microscopy/Histology

Electron Microscopy/Histology

The EM and Histology Facility of the CRTD and the BIOTEC provides expertise and technology to study the histology and ultrastructure of cell and tissue samples. It offers access to modern sample preparation technology and electron microscopes (TEM and SEM), provides histology and EM services, and more demanding projects can be performed in collaboration with the facility. The facility also develops sample preparation techniques especially for correlative light electron microscopy (CLEM). [details]

ES/iPS

ES/iPS

The ES/iPS Cell Facility provides iPS cell and isogenic iPS/ES cell lines generation, pluripotency characterization, and engineering (gene correction, reporters, knock in/outs) services to the scientific community. [details]

Flow Cytometry

Flow Cytometry

The shared Flow Cytometry Facility of the BIOTEC and CRTD offers access to state-of-the-art devices as well as services such as multi-color analysis, cell sorting, flow cytometry training and support in designing and analysis of experiments. [details]

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

GMP compiles guidelines required in order to ensure high standards and reproducibility for the production of drugs. These guidelines provide minimum requirements that a pharmaceutical manufacturer must meet to assure that the products are of high quality and do not pose any risk to the consumer or public. GMP is a substantial prerequisite for a successful translation of basic research into clinical applications, like cellular therapies [details]

Light Microscopy

Light Microscopy

The Light Microscopy Facility provides researchers with high quality imaging systems along with strong support for the design of their experiments. The facility currently comprises more than 20 different systems ranging from high resolution confocals to simple fluorescent video microscopes. Sophisticated image processing can be accomplished on high-end graphics machines. [details]

Microstructure

Microstructure

The Microstructure Facility (MSF) provides cutting edge technologies for the micro-structuring of organic/inorganic materials, offering full set of skills and capabilities within photolithography, soft lithography, polymer microstructuring, thin film deposition and microfluidics. MSF focuses on developing strong collaborations with researchers, supporting research projects for the optimization of specific microfabrication steps or complete processes and devices. [details]

Molecular Analysis

Molecular Analysis

The Molecular Analysis Facility provides services and equipment to analyze the formation rate and strength of biomolecular interactions as well as services for the identification and structural analysis of biomolecules by mass spectrometry, including sequence analysis of peptides. [details]

Molecular Imaging and Manipulation

Molecular Imaging and Manipulation

The Molecular Imaging and Manipulation Facility provides state-of-the-art microscopy applications combined with profound knowledge of image and data analysis to identify and characterize structure-function-relationships on a molecular level. [details]

Single Cell Analysis

Single Cell Analysis

The Single Cell Unit offers targetted gene expression profiling or whole transcriptome analysis of single cells. The facility provides assistance in experimental design, technological support and access to state-of-the-art systems or provides the full workflow – from a single cell to expression profiles – as a service.  [details]
