Karolinska Cell Therapy Center (KCC)

Manufacturing gene therapy vectors and cell therapies for clinical tests, the Karolinska Cell Therapy Center (KCC) is a core facility devoted to supporting the development of new treatments using advanced drug therapy (ATMP) and cells for transplant.

Vecura – manufacturing advanced therapy drugs at KCC
Vecura is a production unit within KCC for advanced therapy drugs and cells for transplant.

Jonassons Centre for Medical Imaging

The Centre’s overall aim is that healthcare, technology and research in the Stockholm region is world-leading in terms of medical imagery.

Animal Behavior Core Facility (ABCF)

The Animal Behavior Core Facility consists of two nodes, Node KM-B in Solna and Node PKL in Flemingsberg

Preclinical Laboratoratories (PKL), Karolinska Hospital, Huddinge

Levercellslaboratoriet

Live Cell Imaging Facility

The Live Cell Imaging Facility is a light microscopy facility. We offer state-of-the-art microscopes and training to image cells and tissues, live or fixed. The Live Cell Imaging facility is open to all researchers.
Please contact Karl Ekwall, karl.ekwall@ki.se or Thomas Tinglöv, thomas.tinglov@ki.se

Morphological Phenotype Analysis, Feno

The great surge in numbers of mutant mice has made efficient phenotyping a necessity in order to find and adequately describe the changes caused by the genetic manipulation. Pathology is a major and integral part of the phenotyping process.
With support from WCN, The Unit for Morphological Phenotype Analysis (FENO) was established as a competence and service facility for mouse pathology at KI in 2002, and as such specializing in the pathology of genetically engineered mice.

Center for high resolution electron microscopy – EM

The objective of the high-resolution electron microscopy core facility is to provide a seamless facility for general EM, cryoEM and high-resolution studies of biological specimens. The facility is located in the Novum building, Campus Flemingsberg.

BEA – the core facility for Bioinformatics and Expression Analysis

BEA – the core facility for Bioinformatics and Expression Analysis is a national genomic service facility located at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition in the new NEO building at the KI South Campus in Huddinge. BEA provides an extensive repertoire of genomic technologies to ongoing research projects principally at the Karolinska Institute but also at other Swedish universities. This includes services for genomic analysis based on the Illumina, Affymetrix, Agilent, and ABI platforms for sequencing, microarray analysis and qPCR. Our services are extensive and ranges from experimental planning to bioinformatic support. We are also offering services for RNA and DNA purification, nucleic acid quality control and different qPCR based assays.

Electron Microscopy Unit, EMIL

The Electron Microscopy Unit (EMil) at Karolinska University Hospital is a core facility that helps researchers solve biological issues with the help of electron microscopy techniques.

Karolinska Trial Alliance, KTA

Phase I clinical trials are an early stage of drug development. Karolinska Trial Alliance (KTA) is a clinical testing unit at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, supported by Stockholm County Council and Karolinska Institutet. Through specialization and exceptional knowledge, KTA contributes to improving process efficiency during clinical trials.

Mutation Analysis Facility MAF

The Mutation Analysis Facility ay Karolinska University Hospital is an accredited laboratory that helps researchers to study millions of genetic variations to identify and evaluate how these affect different diseases processes.
