Core Facilities

Due to the subject matter of the groups forming part of the centre the Research Support Units included in the centre are:

  • Nanoimaging Unit: composed of different equipment for imaging, both in vitro and in vivo. From which the following can be noted: fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Cell Culture Unit: unit provided with the equipment (cabins, liquid nitrogen containers, inverted microscopes, etc.) and technical staff necessary for the maintenance of cell cultures required at the different centre lines.
  • Chemical Unit: equipped with different spectroscopic instruments, such as nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers and absorption and fluorescence spectrometers to characterize and analyze the physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials.
  • Histology Unit
  • Animal facility: this unit will accommodate laboratory animals required to carry out pre-clinical trials regarding technologies and products developed in the centre

The Equipment of the NanoImagen Unit has been co-financed by the European Fund of Regional Development (EFRD) together with the Ministry of Science and Innovation in the frame of The Spanish National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008-2011 (record number. PCT-420000-2010-003, quantity. 4,305,000 €

La dotación de equipamiento de las diferentes Unidades de Apoyo ha sido cofinanciada por el Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) junto con el Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad mediante una ayuda del subprograma de actuaciones científico-tecnológicas en los parques científicos y tecnológicos (INNPLANTA), dentro del Plan Nacional de Investigación Científica, Desarrollo e Innovación Tecnológica 2008-2011, (INP-2011-23-420000-ACT2, cuantía 2.424.447,00€)
