The team carries out the culture of primordial cells from chicken embryos, analysing the expression of human proteins. We offer different methods of molecular biology (including the construction of various vectors for expression in eukaryotic and bacteria cells) and cell biology. We are also elaborating methods of transfection and cryoconservation of eukaryotic cells.

We offer cytometric analysis within the following scope:

  • defining the parameters of apoptosis and viability of cells,
  • effectiveness of cells transfection with the use of vectors with the marker/ reporter gene,
  • determinations of cell surface markers,
  • analysis of cell cycle,
  • others, as needed.

Bioimaging effectiveness of transfection with marker genes can also be prepared by using fluorescent microscope Axio Vert.A1 Zeiss. We also have the digital cell sorter BD FACSAria which is equipped with three lasers: blue (488 nm), red (633 nm) and violet (407 nm) and an advanced incubator CO2 Galaxy 48 R and system for cryoconservation  of cells CL8800 CryoLogic.
