Core Facilities and Centres at BioNut
There are several core facilities and centres in which staff at BioNut are involved. There are also some that we as a department are hosting.
BEA - the core facility for Bioinformatics and Expression Analysis
BEA provides an extensive repertoire of genomic technologies to ongoing research projects principally at the Karolinska Institute but also at other Swedish universities. This includes services for genomic analysis based on the Illumina, Affymetrix, Agilent, and ABI platforms for sequencing, microarray analysis and qPCR.
LCI - The Live Cell Imaging Facility
The Live Cell Imaging Facility is a light microscopy facility. We offer state-of-the-art microscopes and training to image cell and tissues, live or fixed. The Live Cell Imaging facility is open to all researchers.
eHealth Core Facility - support for research and innovations in eHealth
Do you need support to conceptualise, develop, test and implement an eHealth tool or intervention? By choosing from a wide range of methods, we ensure the quality of your eHealth project, from idea to implementation. The eHealth Core Facility is a collaboration between three Departments at KI; BioNut, CNS, and LIME.
KISCO - Karolinska Institutet Stem Cell Organoid
KISCO is a facility at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition (BioNut), Campus Flemingsberg.
The main goal of KISCO is, to assist researchers mainly within KI and Sweden to harbour the potential of pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) in studying complex human disease mechanisms.
Centre for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CBB)
CBB aims to be a natural partner for research groups located at Campus Flemingsberg with a need for assistance on bioinformatics or biostatistics.
The purpose of the centre is to coordinate existing competence and infrastructure and to function as a knowledge hub for bioinformatics and biostatistics for research groups in the area.
Centre for Nutrition
The Centre for Nutrition is a new research centre at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Campus Flemingsberg. It explores how diet composition, dietary regimes, and nutritional supplements can be used to improve human health and longevity.
Core facilities and centres at KI
A research centre aims to create a dynamic collaboration and share resources within a certain field of research. Research centres at KI can be either collaborations between departments or with other organisations.
Core facilities at KI
Karolinska Institutet offers a wide range of core facilities, providing service, recourses and competence to academic research in Sweden. These core facilities were all founded to meet the needs of the university’s own scientists, and they are under constant development to provide the latest techniques and knowledge within their fields of expertise. Karolinska Institutet is also a major partner in several national research infrastructures.
