The analytical platform of the Biobank Lariboisière offers services based on state-of-the-art equipment and technological innovations generated by the Biobank. It is run by a multidisciplinary team of experts in biochemistry, cell biology, biophysics and pathology.
DEPArray cell sorting (Silicon Biosystems/Menarini)
Identification, purification and analysis of cell populations, including rare ones, in biological fluids, such as circulating tumour cells, endothelial cells, etc.
Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
Structural, biophysical and biomechanical analysis of cells, tissues or biomolecules.
Production of eukaryotic cells. Culture of tissues, cell lines, for the production of iPSCs and exosomes; mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cords; skin-derived products.
Histology, in situ hybridization, immunostaining, metabolomics, enzyme.
Metabolic explorations of the cell
Characterization of key elements of cellular metabolism such as oxidative stress, disorders of the mitochondrial respiratory chain, cellular energy status, inflammation and cell death.
Versatile animal model Caenorhabditis elegans
Models of human pathologies in C elegans suitable for the study of rare and neurodegenerative diseases, screening of the efficacy and toxicity of chemical compounds, AFM screening of their toxicity.
