Infrastructures at IGP

The department includes six service facilities that are also open to external users. Most of them are organised in platforms within SciLifeLab.

Uppsala Genome Center offers genetic analyses such as genotyping and sequencing, including SOLiD ultra high throughput sequencing.

The mission for the Clinical Genomics Uppsala facility is to develop and provide new genetic tests for routine diagnostics and translational research projects.

The PLA and Single Cell Proteomics Facility employs proximity-based assays for very sensitive protein detection with a high capacity for multiplexing.

Data Centre provides support regarding IT and data management, both to other SciLifeLab platforms and to external users.

The Preclinical Cancer Treatment Center is a pilot facility that offers service for the evaluation of novel drugs or for studies for refining current cancer therapies.

IGP also hosts the BioVis facility which provides researchers with instrumentation and service for flow cytometry and microscopy. BioVis is largely financed by the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy.
