Service facilities at IGP

The department includes seven service facilities, which are also open to external users. The facilities are organised in platforms within SciLifeLab but are run by IGP staff.

At the BioVis facility researchers are provided instrumentation and service for flow cytometry and microscopy.

Uppsala Genome Center offers genetic analyses such as genotyping and sequencing, including SOLiD ultra high throughput sequencing.

At the PLA platform researchers can perform protein analyses using the Proximity Ligation Assay technique.

The Tissue Profiling platform provides services focusing on histopathology.

The mission for the Clinical Sequencing facility is to develop and provide new genetic tests for routine diagnostics and translational research projects.

The Single Cell Proteomics Facility provides access to state-of-the art methods to detect proteins, or protein combined with RNA, in single cells.

The Preclinical Cancer Treatment Center is a pilot facility that will start its activities during 2017.
