- Laboratories & diagnostics
The laboratory is fully equipped for molecular biology and facilitates the work of staff and students contributing to fundamental research projects.
Laboratory and facilities
The laboratory is an MPI-registered PC2 transitional and containment facility. The lab is equipped to perform various nucleic acid extraction methods, PCR testing (conventional and real-time), fragment analysis and DNA sequencing. The laboratory is kept under negative pressure to contain all airborne materials in the lab. The physical work space is split into pre- and post-PCR areas, with dedicated PCR set up space, allowing for best practice workflow.
The equipment includes:
- QIAcube HT and Connect
- Veriti and ProFlex Thermocyclers
- Rotor-Gene Q real-time Thermocyclers
- 3500xL Genetic Analyzer
- MinION real-time sequencer
