Imaging and Molecular Biology Platform


images and molecular biology platformThe Platform is part of the Green Chemistry CFI initiative and a centralized resource for microscopy and molecular biology equipment. The platform provides instruments, training and assistance to internal and external researchers. Microscopy services range from confocal/multiphoton and high content microscopy to epifluorescence day to day microscopes and analysis softwares. Histological equipment and automated slide staining is also available. Molecular applications cover quantitative (qPCR) and qualitative (Bioanalyzer) sample analysis.
