Below we have listed examples of facilities and equipment
available at SLU and UU.  

BioVis
A core facility for microscopy, flow cytometery and image analysis.

Cells for Life Platform
A state-of-the-art facility for the study of reproductive cells and infections.

Electron Microscope Unit SLU
Electron microscopy unit for the preparation and processing of biomaterials for scanning (SEM) and transmission electron microsopy (TEM).

Hedenstierna Laboratory
Translational laboratory for studies and interventions involving large animals, e.g. surgery and examination of respiratory, circulatory and renal physiology.

IMBIM BSL3 Lab
Security lab for studies on BSL3 organisms, e.g. zoonotic viruses and human pathogens.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Mass Spectroscopy (MS) infrastructure
Structural analysis and metabolomics studies by NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry.

SciLifeLab
A national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research. The center gathers a large number of infrastructure services in Uppsala and in the rest of Sweden. There are also a number of pilot facilities established by the host universities, which in the future has potential to be included as national service facilities.

Uppsala Biobank
An infrastructure for medical research and a center of competence for biobank related matters.

Uppsala University Behavioral Facility (UUBF)
A platform for behavioral testing of mouse, rat and fish.

Confocal Microscopy Platform
The confocal microscopy platform provides access to laser scanning microscopes.
