Research InfrastructureCellnetworks Core Technology Platform (CCTP)
The CellNetworks Core Technology Platform (CCTP) serves as an umbrella organization for Core Facilities. The name is derived from the former Cluster of Excellence CellNetworks, which played a significant role in developing the Core Facility infrastructure of the Heidelberg Life Sciences Campus.
CCTP-ASSOCIATED CORE FACILITIES
ADDITIONAL OPEN CORE FACILITIES, TECHNOLOGY NETWORKS & LARGE EQUIPMENT
Biomechanics Core Facility
The Biomechanics Core Facility provides standardized and reproducible mechanical characterization of soft (bio) materials, as well as specific sample preparation methods required for the characterization.
Core Facility Platform Mannheim Campus
The Core Facility Platform Mannheim, CFPM, consists of seven Core Facilities covering diverse areas and creating a Core Facility Pipeline, which operates research requests from basic analysis to imaging, microscopy, cell sorting and up to data analysis.
Infectious Diseases Imaging Platform (IDIP)
The Infectious Diseases Imaging Platform (IDIP) provides, develops and applies high-end microscopy infrastructure under conditions of enhanced biosafety containment 2 and 3 (BSL-2 and 3) to enable infectious diseases research.
IZN FACS Facility
The facility at the IZN-Neurobiology Department provides access to flow cytometry-based applications and a unique service on the campus for the sorting of rare neural cell populations and subcellular components.
Scientific Facility for Microfabrication and Microfluidics
Microfluidics is an emerging field and is finding use in various disciplines. At the Scientific Facility for Microfabrication and Microfluidics we aim to provide this valuable tool to every interested research group in and around the Neuenheimer Feld.
The newly installed MINFLUX nanoscope offers super-resolution microscopy with a resolution up to 2 nm in 3D.
Scientific Software Center
The SSC aims to aid researchers in all aspects related to software development, including resources such as guidelines, project templates and development projects. The SSC aims to ensure reproducible science and software sustainability across disciplines.
