The flexible working environment at UCMM allows for interchangeable knowledge expertise of several molecular techniques applied by the different laboratories. The resources listed below are not only available to staff working at UCMM but also for external users.
Optical projection tomography (OPT) is a new technique for generating three dimensional images of gene expression patterns or protein distribution. In contrast to other topmographic techniques, OPT benefits from the possibility to utilize the abundant pool of standard laboratory markers (such as antibodies, LacZ expression, in situ hybridization etc.) to generate contrast. Research performed at UCMM has demonstrated the potential of OPT as tool for imaging and quantification of intact adult mouse organs, e.g. in pancreatic beta-cell assessments in diabetes research.

In the dedicated cryostat room we have access to six MICROM HM 505 E cryostat sectioning instruments with the capacity to cut 1 to 20 µm thick sections. This facility is the nourishing environment of many inspiring discussions about science, as well as life's existential problems.
