Our facility is primarily a user-based facility where researchers are trained on the care and handling of the equipment. In addition to providing training for new users, our staff is available to help users in the design of experiments and the interpretation of results. It is also possible to agree that experiments are fully performed by the staff, for feasibility testing, for example.
This facility consists of several instruments based on optical spectroscopy for the biophysical characterization of biological samples.
The optical spectroscopy platform is primarily available for CBM investigators, but remains open to all members of the scientific community - both academic and privately-funded.
