Smartare bruk av bilddata ska bereda väg för säkrare läkemedel

Forskare vid Lunds universitet ska tillsammans med Medicon Village-baserade Truly Labs inom några år utveckla nya produkter som främjar framtagandet av säkra läkemedel. Innovativ användning av bilddata ska bidra till att minska riskerna för biverkningar på lungorna – ett stort problem i läkemedelsutveckling.

I samarbetet ingår:

  • Forskare vid institutionen för translationell medicin, Lunds universitet, Malmö
  • Lund University Bioimaging Center (LBIC), Lund universitet, Lund
  • Life science-företaget Truly Labs AB som utför kontraktsforskning vid Medicon Village i Lund

New equipment in our Histology lab

We are happy to inform you that we now have new equipment in our Histology lab!

  • We can help you with Embedding in paraffin and the following sectioning on our new Leica paraffin microtome.
  • We can offer you the same help with cryo sectioning on the new Leica cryostat.
  • We also have the possibility to help you with labeling and staining for light microscopy.

If you prefer, you are welcome to use the equipment yourself.
