In situ hybridization/imaging core facility

In situ hybridization/imaging core facility

The facility enables researchers to perform mRNA In Situ hybridization in a controlled environment.


The detection of gene expression or viral sequences at the single cell level makes it possible to determine the site of production of molecules or pathogens. The use of high resolution quantitative evaluation makes it possible to study gene regulation at the single cell level as well as to evaluate the effects of physiological or pharmacological manipulations.

The laboratory enables guests or research groups to perform in situ hybridization on their specimens in a controlled environment to minimize set up time and rapidly produce results. Suitable laboratory and darkroom facilities are available and varying levels of assistance are available depending on the need of the individual groups.


The facility aims particularly at projects involving human genes, disease genes, and human organs. A complete image analysis and processing system is available.
