CELLULAR BIOLOGY / IMAGING

These platforms provide access to a range of competencies serving functional exploration, flow cytometry and high-throughput screening, as well as a varied and extensive range of imaging technologies including two-photon microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, spectral imaging and evanescent wave microscopy.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

These platforms provide expertise in DNA cloning, transcriptomic analyses, the construction of complex biological systems for synthetic biology, etc. and access to a large range of instruments : gel documentation system, PCR and qPCR systems, slide scanner, etc.

STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY / CHEMICAL ANALYSIS

These platforms offer a range of technologies for the study of molecular structures and interactions of ligands, proteins and nucleic acids, as well as a variety of separation techniques. In particular, equipment for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), atomic force microscopy (AFM), spectrofluorometry and mass spectrometry are also available via these platforms.

BIOMANUFACTURING

These platforms offer technologies for the bioproduction of therapeutic recombinant proteins in eukaryotes and monoclonal antibodies or virus-like particles via transient expression (thus GMO-free) in plant systems, as well as the automated production of human pluripotent stem cells.

BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES CENTER

These platforms provide access to collections of biological samples as well as an innovative technology capable of storing DNA at room temperature.

FUNCTIONAL EXPLORATION

These platforms provide animal housing, experimentation units and shared equipment for exploratory and characterization work in cellular, murine, amphibian and piscine models. They provide optimal conditions for research while insuring the total respect of health and ethical standards.

INFORMATICS / BIOINFORMATICS

These platforms provide a complete environment for informatics and bioinformatics. This includes calculation resources and high-performance software to enable applications in systems biology, synthetic biology, genomics, imaging analyses and virtual and augmented reality.

ROBOTIZATION / AUTOMATION

These platforms provide technologies for robotization and automation, enabling applications in imaging, high throughput screening, microinjection and agroinfiltration.
