The Institute is well provided for when it comes to on-site facilities, equipment and expertise. Our technical support staff are here to ensure researchers get the best use out of all the facilities on offer
The Institute has a global reputation for imaging. We have multiple different systems available, backed up with on-site training.
A dedicated team custom-builds super-resolution imaging systems on site.
We run a high-performance compute cluster for processing the large datasets generated by sequencing, imaging, mass spectrometry and other sources.
Our dedicated specialist runs DNA and RNA sequencing on site.
The core bioinformatics team can support your experimental design and analysis.
With access to new types of imaging systems, researchers can also call on expertise in image analysis.
Flow cytometry and FACS
There are two flow cytometers on site, and we provide two Sony SH800 fluorescence-activated cell sorters with technical support.
Media and glasswashing
Bespoke and standard solutions, culture plates, fly food, and washed and sterilised glassware are provided by our Media team.
Expertise is key
It’s not just about having pieces of kit. Researchers need support and training to make the most of our facilities and cutting-edge systems. Larger pieces of equipment are shared across the Institute, and within each group the lab managers and postdocs help new recruits with lab-specific culture and procedures.
