Research Facilities and Scientific Platforms

DanStem’s state-of-the-art wet lab and tissue culture laboratories are equipped for working with both Embryonic Stem Cells (ESCs) and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC). Together with the Center's three scientific platforms, they provide a solid research infrastructure. The Scientific Platforms are listed and further described below:

The Flow Cytometry Platform

The Flow Cytometry Core Facility provides state-of-the-art equipment and software, cell sorting and expert flow cytometry support to researchers at the Danish Stem Cell Center, the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research and their affiliates and collaborators.
For more information contact FACS Manager Gelo Victoriano Dela Cruz

The Imaging Platform

Currently consists of two Confocal Imaging systems and four Wide-field systems. The Confocal systems are fully automated, equipped with incubation chambers, and screening software. Of the Wide-field systems, one is fully automated and equipped with incubation chamber and screening software, whereas the others are only partially automated.
The Platform provides assistance and training in the operation of the microscopes for cell and tissue imaging. The facility keeps up to date with the latest developments in microscopy, implements new techniques and makes them easily accessible for scientists at DanStem, center affiliates and collaborators. For more information contact Imaging Technical Coordinator Jutta Maria Bulkescher

In addition to the Microscopes, the facility is also providing assistance and training in Image Analysis. For more information contact Gopal Karemore

Core Facility for Transgenic Mice 

Danstem has established a close collaboration with the University’s Core Facility for Transgenic Mice (TCF) and has hosted the facility since 2012. Read more about the services the TCF offers at:
