The MCB service consists of three analysis laboratories. The Microscopy Laboratory offers access to a wide range of equipment for optical microscopy, equipped with a wide range of objectives, light sources, filters and high-resolution cameras. The flow cytometry and FlowCam laboratory uses a FACSAria II cell sorter, which integrates optical and fluidic systems to maximize signal detection. The cytometer can recognize a large number of cell types, detecting characteristics and organelles of cells flowing in suspension. Cells can be isolated for further processing or culture. The Molecular Biology lab offers protocols related to the isolation and processing of nucleic acids for sequencing, including bioinformatic analysis of sequence data.
