New strategic facilities include:

  • The Cell Biophysics Joint Lab is equipped with an automated mf-FLIM and a 2photon-FLIM; exploited to detect molecular interactions by time resolved FRET in single cells as well as fixed tissue.
  • Advanced systems in microscopy and imaging (bright-field, fluorescent and polarised microscopes, inverted microscope with fluorescence and hr image systems, compact high performance scanning for high-resolution histological preparations and their shipment to a mass storage system).
  • Functional analysis (liquid chromatograph and HR mass spectrometer, X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, high speed UC, microplate reader integrated with image acquisition, laser microdissection for histological samples and cell cultures).
  • Biobanking (freezing and storing capabilities of the BBEBB).
