Cell Culture and fermentors Facility

The cell culture facility provides support for tissue culture in a variety of conditions that can be used for screening of therapeutic potential of chemical and materials; growth on designed scaffolds and assessment of gene delivery platforms. Screening is focused on cell viability in a range of human/rodent cell types, evaluation toxicity – ROS, cell toxicity, proteome and genotoxicity (comet assays, DNA interaction). Support is also available for Flow Cytometry analysis. This facility performs analyses and data interpretation. Fermentation facilities support continuous and batch microbial culture under controlled conditions.
