Methodology Platform

As a technological platform for high through-put analysis of gene function and gene expression, both at the transcriptome and proteome level, we established the clinical gene analysis laboratory. This laboratory is equipped with a three laser fluorescence isotope scanner (FLA 5000, Fuji), a Chip scanner (DNAScope LM+, GeneFocus), a high performance Spotter (Verse Array Chip Writer pro System, BioRad) with automatic liquid handling system, a chip hybridisation and washing station [Array Booster AB410 and ADVA Wash (Implan)], a Siemens Versant kPCR liquid handling robot for nucleic acid isolation from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections and a Laser Scanning Microscop TCS-SPE (Leica) with incubation chamber.
