The department has a first-class infrastructure with respect to instrumentation, premises for research, education, and different types of support functions. A substantial part of the instruments are listed in the fully searchable database InstrumentKeeper where information on the instruments their applications and contact persons are provided.
A large fraction of the instruments are organized in platforms and core facilities that in some cases are nodes national and international infrastructures. These offer access to instruments and service and education to a varying degree.
Computational Analytics Support Platform(CASP)
We support life science researchers at Umeå University to analyse their experimental data using advanced data-driven tools and strategies
CBCS is a node in the national infrastructure Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden that is part of Science for Life Laboratories. CBCS provides infrastructure and staff for chemical biology and small molecule screening.
This infrastructure is based on a number of spectrometers (360-850 MHz) and provides support for NMR analysis of a wide variety of samples, everything from small organic molecules to proteins and new materials for materials science . The infrastructure is a node in the national networks SciLife Lab, SwedNMR and the Swedish NMR Centre.
The platform offers state of the art mass spectrometric services for qualitative and quantitative trace measurements of organic compounds, metals and organo-metals as well as isotope-ratio analyses of trace gasses.
The aims of the Centre are (1) providing high-quality service and technical in scanning and transmission electron microscopy, (2) conducting basic and practical courses, workshops and training on electron microscopy, and (3) assisting in cross-disciplinary research activities on the development and applications of advanced methodologies in electron microscopy and microanalysis.
