Technology platforms

EMBRC-ERIC provides access to the latest technologies for the conduction of both fundamental and applied research by users from Research, Education and the Industry sectors. Important instruments for the modern investigation of marine biology, EMBRC-ERIC users will have access to standard molecular laboratories and high throughput molecular analysis tools through genomics, proteomics and metabolomics platforms, including sample manipulation robots, next-generation sequencers, laser scanners, and specialist equipment for mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, and magnetic resonance. Bio-imaging platforms comprise equipment for scanning and transmission electron microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy and state-of-the-art image analysis. The platforms also include the required sample preparation facilities, e.g. for thin sectioning and staining. A list of the various EMBRC-ERIC Technology platforms include:

  • Aquaculture
  • Biological analysis
  • Imaging
  • Molecular biology and ‘omics
  • Remote sensing and telemetry
  • Structural and chemical analysis
  • Other technology platforms

Access is on-site, on demand. The services offered can be: delegated to the EMBRC-ERIC staff; or: co-produced between the user and the EMBRC-ERIC staff; or: produced independently by the user, depending on the nature (open/competitive) of the research. Technical support is always available , as well as training sessions.
