    UKE FACS Sorting Core Facility

  • UCCH In vivo optical imaging core facility

    The IVIS 200 detects luminescene and flurescence signals and is ideal for studying organ-specific reporter gene expression. It is good for tumor and metastasis monitoring. The luminescence imaging requires genetically engineered models. Analysis is performed by our staff. Costs are payed as fee for service (luminescence substrate 0,70 Euro/ anmial, narcotics for the measurement, and service fee for our technician, 50 Euro/h). Feel free to contact us for further details.

  • Micro CT and bone analysis technology platform

    This system is ideal for studying bone architecture and bone metastases. Is not yet utilized for soft tissue imaging and delivers ionizing radiation (albeit in low doses). Technology may be used in close collaboration with the group of Prof. Hesse.

  • MRI Platform

    The MRI platform is located at the Dept. of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology and headed by Dr. Ittrich. The preclinical 7T MR Scanner (Clinscan 70/30 Bruker Biospin) gives high diagnostic accuracy and superior soft tissue contrast. MRI is non invasive and ideal for longitudinal studies. For further details about the system and its application please contact Michael Kaul.
