Infrastructure and Platforms

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

Computational Analytics Support Platform

Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden (CBCS)

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.

Protein Expertise Platform (PEP)

This platform provides service and guidance for all steps required for preparation of proteins.

Protein Expertise Platform (PEP)

X-ray crystallography

The platforms offers expertise in crystallography and access to advanced instrumentation and consumables.

X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)

The platform provides support for semi-quantitative analysis of all elements (except H and He) in different types of surfaces using electron spectroscopy.

Trace Analysis Platform (TAP)

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.

Trace Analysis Platform (TAP)

Umeå Centre for Electron Microscopy (UCEM)

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.

Vibrational spectroscopy

The infrastructure provides several instruments and service for Fourier transform infrared, Raman, and micro spectroscopy.
