Technology platforms and service laboratories
State-of-the-art technologies for cell analysis
The DRFZ operates cutting edge technology platforms for the analysis of single immune cells, the cells of their environment and their interactions. These Shared Resource Laboratories (SRL) offer unique opportunities to observe cells-of-interest in their natural environment and to identify and isolate cells to analyse them further in molecular and functional studies. Beyond providing services for the research groups, the SRL also develop completely new technologies that offer new options for identifying, isolating or eliminating cells. The laboratories are operated in cooperation with partners from the Charité and the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology. In the service laboratories, research groups receive technological and logistical support – for standardised and quality-controlled studies.
