Karolinska Institutet Core Facilities
Karolinska Core Facilities is an umbrella definition for service laboratories, resources and competence centres whose activities are coordinated, supervised and partly financed by the Board of Research (FS) in collaboration with the local committees for Research and Education (FoUU) of the associated hospitals.
Access to the Core Facilities is open to all researchers at KI and other academic institutions and also, to a limited extent, to commercial enterprises.
Service laboratories and resource centres operate on a fee per service basis while competence centres aim to disseminate specific technologies and know-how on a collaborative basis. Policies regarding services, access, fees and prioritization vary by facility.
Core Facilities are managed by departments or units within Karolinska Institutet or associated hospitals.
Information about each core facility is found in the left menu.
