Facilities

We have cutting edge cellular and molecular biology laboratories. In our equipment stands out: Complete equipment for analyzing proteins using state-of-the-art machinery in techniques such as Western Blot or general immunodetection. In addition, we have the capacity to analyze luminescence, colorimetry, fluorescence and radiation, in single or multiplate formats. We have full capacity to perform cell culture, with a culture room that is sterilized by UVC radiation, certified biosafety and sterilization machinery, liquid nitrogen tanks and adequate refrigeration. In addition, we have all the technology to develop our project in terms of bioprocesses, that means bioreactor, pumps, sensors, controllers, gas handling, among others. Also, we have collaborative workspaces in Viña del Mar.

Within its various equipment, it is possible to carry out tests in:

Cell Culture

  • Evaluación de proliferación celular y citotoxicidad.
  • Cell storage in liquid nitrogen.
  • Purification and / or isolation of cell fractions by centrifugation.
  • Fluorescence microscopy.

Cell and Molecular Biology

  • Extraction and quantification of proteins with colorimetric methods (BCA).
  • Protein resolution (SDS-PAGE) and identification with antibodies (Western Blot, Immunofluorescence, ELISA).
  • Quantification of compounds and chemical reactions through spectrophotometry (plate reader).

Analytic Chemistry

  • Preparation of solutions.
  • pH measurement and adjustment.
