The RNC consists of a complex of well equipped labs for different types of experiments:
- Tissue culture labs on B- and C-level
Equipped with fume hood, biohazard hood and CO2-incubator for cell labelling experiments like:
- 51Chromium release assay
- 35S- labelled compounds for incorporation in cells and immune precipitation
- 3H-, 14C-labeled compounds for uptake.
Specially equipped with Perspex shields to work with this nuclide in experiments like:
- kinase assays
- Northern and Southern blotting.
HPLC-lab: advanced HPLC configuration with UV-detector and on-line radioactivity detector.
Radiation detectors or counters:
Liquid Scintillation Counter for measuring beta-radiation from nuclides like 3H-, 14C-, 35S- and 32P.
Gamma counter for measuring nuclides like 99mTc, 125I, 18F.
a Top Counter for measuring microtiter plates for radioactivity or luminescence.
A Phosphor Imager for developing phosphor imaging screens and detection of fluorescence in gels.
Also under the supervision of the RNC: Gamma cell 40 irradiation machine for irradiating cells.
