At the cutting edge: Modern technology is a driver of research
Without modern technology, cancer research is inconceivable today. High-throughput methods make it possible to decipher the molecular biology of cancer cells in their complexity and variety – like looking for a needle in a haystack – to detect possible vulnerabilities.
Scientists at the Research Institute of the Children's Cancer Center Hamburg therefore have well-equipped laboratories at their disposal, which meet all requirements for biological, radio- and genetic engineering work at safety levels 1 and 2.
The research institute is equipped with the following large devices:
- Molecular Imager
- Fluorescence Microscope
- Pipetting Robot
- Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorter (FACS)
- Light Cycler
- Monochromatic Microplate Reader
- Pipetting Platform
Through our partnership with the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and the Heinrich Pette Institute, we have access to additional large equipment such as next-generation sequencers, confocal laser microscopes, STORM photon microscopy, bioluminescence, small animal MRI, etc.
