Cell Biology

Facts & Details: 

The molecular cell biology group employs a broad range of molecular biology techniques and methods. Several tools for large-scale functional experiments are available including a fully automated siRNA transfection and cell culture unit  for high-content screenings (HCS). The workstation is based on a Freedom Evo200 robotic platform (Tecan) that allows the cultivation and simultaneous analysis of up to 18,000 samples per week. Other techniques comprise interaction screening by two-hybrid systems, FACS, in vivo confocal imaging (Leica TCS SP5 Matrixscreen) and a well-equipped histopathology unit.
