Science Services

The Babraham Institute provides unique research facilities of national importance which have been developed with significant investment from the BBSRC. External organisations can benefit from access to these facilities, coordinated by Babraham Institute Enterprise

 

Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics

The bioinformatics group provide biological computing services for the research groups at the institute but also for companies both on site and further afield.

 
Biological Chemistry

Biological Chemistry

We have a purpose built chemistry laboratory in which we can carry out almost any chemical reaction on a research scale and use analytical facilities on site.
Biological Support Unit

Biological Support Unit

Our state-of-the-art Biological Support Unit (BSU) provides housing and care for pathogen-free rodents used in both the academic scientific research programmes and by private companies.

Flow Cytometry

Flow Cytometry

Our Flow Cytometry Facility offers high quality service and state-of-the-art instrumentation to members of the Babraham Institute and companies on the Babraham Research Campus

 

Gene Targeting

The Babraham Gene Targeting Facilities provides a complete service to generate genetically altered mouse strains for Babraham Institute researchers and external investigators.
Imaging

Imaging

The Imaging Facility is equipped with state-of-the-art commercial imaging technologies and provides supported access to this equipment, ensuring all users have appropriate training to use the technologies and techniques on offer.

Lipidomics

Lipidomics

The Lipidomics Facility has established methods to analyse various classes of neutral lipids, phospholipids and sphingolipids using a Shimadzu IT-TOF mass spectrometer hyphenated with a Shimadzu Prominence HPLC system.
Mass Spectrometry

Mass Spectrometry

The primary role of the Mass Spectrometry Facility is to apply state-of-the-art techniques in mass spectrometry to address important biological questions within the remit of the Institute. We also offer services to Babraham Campus companies.
Sequencing

Sequencing

The flexibility of the Next Generation Sequencing technology allows almost any genetic material to be studied on a genome-wide scale.
