Core facilities are service units with special equipment and special competences. They offer services to researchers at Aarhus University, but also to researchers from other universities, hospitals etc. The core facilities are specialised within their respective areas, so that they can improve quality and efficiency.
The Department of Clinical Medicine has several animal facilities located adjacent to the various research facilities. It is possible to house a range of different species here.
CML has a wide-ranging interdisciplinary collaboration with health and natural scientific fields, in particular. We have expertise in micro imaging, telemetry, physiology sensors, hyperbaric physiology and 3D printing. Everyone with an interest is welcome to contact us.
CONNECT is a consulting service helping researchers make use of health data in personalized medicine research. We offer 10 hours of research support free of charge within our areas of expertise: register-based research, statistical analysis, data management, bioinformatics, and genetic analysis. We can help in any stage of your project, from study design and methodological considerations to analysis and interpretation of data. CONNECT can also help answer some of the legal questions arising when working with health data.
The FACS core facility is equipped with two FACSAria IIIs and one MoFlo Astrios. We also have two analysers at our disposal; a LSRFortessa with 4 lasers as well as a NovoCyte with 3 lasers. Facility users also have access to a combined microscope and flow cytometer – an ImageStream. We provide services to researchers at Aarhus University, other universities, business and industry.
Our highly specialised endocrinology and diabetes laboratory carries out advanced metabolic examinations of healthy volunteers and patients, develops hormone analyses for improved diagnostics and treatment, sets-up cell and tissue models to clarify cellular disease processes and works with biomarker research for identification of e.g. late-diabetic complications and cardiovascular disease. All Danish universities and hospitals can use our services.
Our lab has state-of-the art technologies for advanced analyses of proteins, metabolites and metabolic activities, and offers collaboration within these areas.
Our work-flows cover steps from sample preparation, data acquisition and data treatment.
MOMA possesses equipment and extensive experience to conduct various molecular analyses, including next generation sequencing (NGS Core Center) for both RNA and DNA using short-read or long-read technologies. MOMA provides also single-cell and spatial sequencing (Singe-Cell Core Center) and analysis of cell-free and circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA Core Center). MOMA extends their services to all research groups at Aarhus University, as well as researchers from other universities, business, and industry.
The surgical research laboratories offer operation and laboratory facilities for both research and education. The unit has a wide range of contacts and everyone with an interest in research and education is welcome to contact us.
TNU undertakes breeding and detailed phenotyping of modern psychiatric animal models. Techniques such as advanced behavioural characterisation, microdialysis, biomarker analysis, hplc, protein analysis, gene expression, and microscopy/stereology are available. In addition, TNU houses the collection of brains at Aarhus University. Everyone with an interest is welcome to contact us.
