FACILITIES & SERVICES

MOLECULAR IMAGING PLATFORM

The Molecular Imaging Platform (MIP IBMB-PCB) has been set up as a co-operation between the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB) and the Barcelona Scientific Park (PCB).

It offers a collection of state-of-the-art light microscopy systems, including high-resolution and high-speed confocal microscopy, multiphoton microscopy, automated wide-field imaging and more.

AUTOMATED CRYSTALLOGRAPHY PLATFORM (PAC)

SBU Automated Crystallography Platform

The Automated Crystallography Platform (PAC) is a technology platform that offers researchers the necessary tools to find adequate crystallization conditions from a purified protein sample, followed by X-Ray diffraction data collection and processing of the resulting macromolecular crystals. The PAC Facility is shared with the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB).

PROTEIN PURIFICATION SERVICE

PROTEIN PURIFICATION SERVICE

The Protein Purification Service at Barcelona Scientific Park provides customers reliable analytical and preparative purification tools to be run at room temperature and at 4ºC. The service is supervised by personnel from the SBU and is equipped with a spectrophotometer and several ÄKTA chromatography systems, among them FPLC, Purifiers and Explorer equipments equipped with a 3D kit.

GENOMICS AND TRANSCRIPTOMICS CORE SERVICE

The IBMB Genomics & Transcriptomics Core Facility (PGT-IBMB) has been created to give Scientific and Technologic coverage for the current research projects in the Institute.  The PGT-IBMB has the objective of provide reagents, commercial kits, consumables and technical support related to Q-PCR techniques and chromatin sonication systems.

HISTOLOGY SERVICE

The processing of experimental tissues, organs and/or animals for microscopic study requires the preparation of histological sections in microtomes, vibratomes, cryotomes, etc., appropriate to the characteristics of the optical instruments used for visualization (optical, confocal, fluorescence microscopy, etc.).

CELL CULTURE MEDIA SERVICE

The service provides liquid and solid culture media for E. coli (LB and LB plus different antibiotics), S. cerevisiae (YPD and SDC drop outs) and D. melanogaster. A complete set of the most used buffers in cell and molecular biology are also offered. The users can either utilize the media and buffers in stock or order it in advance if an important quantity is required.
