We work primarily on histological material. Its processing (FFPE, freeze, HOPE) is our central methodical basis. In addition to conventional histological staining techniques, we frequently and regularly work with immunohistochemical staining methods.
Multispectral Immunhistochemistry and Spatial Transcriptomics
We are delighted to have a multispectral immunohistochemical platform (Akoya Vectra-Polaris) available through funding from the DZL, which, in addition to our other technologies (transcriptome, nanostring, cell culture), decisively expands the methodological portfolio. In addition, we managed to acquire a platform for spatial transcriptomics (10x) together with the research group early childhood asthma.

In addition, we have succeeded in acquiring a platform for Spatial Transcriptomics (10x) together with the reseach group early childhood asthma.
In addition to transcriptomics on our DZL-financed Agilent platform (incl. Bioanalyzer and Nanodrop), we offer investigations on the Nanostring N-Counter, providing a prep station. We also apply a light cycler.
We use different cell systems to enable functional studies. In addition to cell lines, this also includes human primary cell cultures (in cooperation with the Grosshansdorf Lung Clinic). Appropriate read out systems are western blot, in cell western and fluorescence microscopy.
