The Medical School possesses a wide range of up-to-date equipment to enable us to service an internationally leading research organisation. These facilities are available for collaborative projects as well as contract research.
The biorepository is a fully compliant, safe and secure, storage facility for all human tissues. It offers help and advice to facilitate compliance with Human Tissue Authority guidelines, and provides tissue banking cryostorage areas.
The facility boasts 3 analysers, and 2 cell sorters. The Cytek Aurora is the newest arrival, and is a spectral analyser. Staff in the facility are available to assist with all aspects of flow cytometry, from experimental design through to data analysis.
The Bioinformatics Core provides Bioinformatics analysis and consulting service to all departments and also offers a comprehensive program of training courses.
The bone analysis lab was established in 2003 to provide members of the Musculoskeletal theme and academics throughout the medical school with access to contemporary approaches to analysing bone.
The Multiomics Facility provides Nanopore sequencing (long read whole genome, RNA seq, plasmid) and Nanostring multiplex, amplification free analysis of up to 800 RNA, DNA, or protein targets. We also offer RNA integrity, DNA fragment and sequencing library analysis using our Bioanalyser.
