Core Facility Imaging

The Core Facility Imaging offers analyses of cells based on colorimetric, fluorescent, and luminescent detection by using microscopy, flow cytometry, and spectrophotometry techniques. Specific label-free techniques allow monitoring of proliferation, migration, and cell death in adherently growing cells. These services enable for instance life-cell imaging/cell monitoring of adherently growing cells, high content screening, phenotyping and isolation of cells in suspension, analysis of cytokines, and identification of cytotoxic/genotoxic/immunotoxic effects. Specific (co)culture systems are available to allow studies of permeation across physiological barriers and of cellular long-term effects.


Infrastructure: Confocal Laser Scan Microscopes (LSM510 Meta, Nikon A1R), High Content Screening (HCS Nikon), Atomic Force Microscopy (Flex-BIO, FLEX-ANA), Multicolor Flow Cytometry (CytoFLEX S, CytoFLEX LX), Cell Sorting (FACSARia IIIu), BioPlex-200, NanoSight NS300.
