Genes and cells

   

Our facilities provide the opportunity to study molecular probes, system biology and molecular interactions in cells and tissues.Below you can see some examples of the infrastructure for research on genes and cells, available for researchers at Lund University.

Stem cell center FACS Core Facility

Flow cytometry is one of the major methods used to analyze and sub-fractionate cells. It has major advantages such as the simultaneous detection of a wide range of parameters that enables the understanding of diversity among seemingly similar cells. The ability to enumerate large numbers of viable cells in a relatively short period of time provides experiment with reliability. At the Stem Therapy FACS Core Facility we have three cell FACS Aria sorters, that allow detection of up to 18 fluorescent probes, as well as two analysis machines: Fortessa and LSRII. We can help you through the whole process, from design of the experiment to the running of the experiment.

Cellomics and Flow Cytometry Core Facility at MultiPark

The MultiPark technical platforms for Cellomics High Content Screening/Analysis and FACSAria III are open to external users.
The Cellomics Array Scan is a high throughput system for acquisition and screening of Fluorescence Microscopy images, applying automated image analysis of fluorescence intensities in cells, subcellular compartments or small organisms, e.g. zebrafish and nematodes.

Our BD FACSAria III cell sorter is equipped with three lasers (blue, yellow/green, red) and can analyze up to ten fluorescent channels and sort up to four cell populations simultaneously.

AAV Vector Core

AAV vectors can be used for the establishment of disease models, experimental gene therapy and basic experimental research of brain functions. These studies can contribute with information which can prove crucial to the understanding of gene function and development of therapeutic vectors.

  • Need to analyse the gene function and development of therapeutic vectors?
  • Want to produce custom vectors according to your own requests?

The Lund AAV Vector Core offers full-service and state-of-the-art vector technology for preclinical studies. Help with development, design and production of AAV vectors. The AAV-facility is open to internal LU-users as well as external users from other universities and industry.
