Advanced Light and Electron Microscopy Bio Imaging Center.
Alembic is envisioned as an environment in which biological experimentation requiring electronic or optical imaging will be expedited through the ready access to state-of-the-art instrumentation. Modern biological imaging technology has become sufficiently sophisticated as to require specialized expertise and technology that is often beyond the reach of individual investigators. Nonetheless a broad range of biological investigators will derive significant benefit from access to such avant-garde technology, particularly as we begin the post-genomic era of biomedical research.
Core Facility for Conditional Mutagenesis.
Transgenic and knock-out mice are widely used because of their high impact on the understanding of protein function, and as models for human diseases.
The San Raffaele Core Facility for Conditional Mutagenesis (CFCM) was born in 1999 with the scope to support research using mouse models.
CFCM generates knock-out and transgenic mice, performs rederivations on existing mice and cryopreserves murine lines. In addition, CFCM helps researchers to plan experiments, to manipulate and genotype mice. The mice produced at CFCM will be SPF certified so they can enter any SPF animal facility.
Protein Microsequencing Facility.
The Protein Microsequencing Facility was established in 2010 at the Scientific Institute San Raffaele. The facility has the purpose to provide a protein micro-characterization service employing the most advanced technology. Access to mass spectrometry and bioinformatics is a crucial key in the emerging field of proteomics, the large scale study of proteins and of their interactions, which is giving a major contribution to the description and understanding of biological processes at the molecular level.
