Kfb Staff

 

The Kompetenzzentrum Fluoreszente Bioanalytik (KFB) is a genomics core facility based at the University of Regensburg. The facility supports state-of-the-art genomics services for the local research community, as well as for external partners and clients across Europe.

 

Our lab is equipped with the following platform technologies:

  • Affymetrix GeneChip microarrays: RNA expression profiling using single-cartridge arrays (GeneChip Scanner 3000), or PEG-plate arrays (GeneTitan system).
  • Deep Sequencing (Illumina HiSeq 1000):  a growing range of sequencing applications is supported, including mRNA-Seq, total RNA-Seq, gDNA-Seq, exome sequencing, ChIP-Seq, smallRNA-Seq.

 
In addition, we offer stand-alone access to the following instruments:

  • Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 (DNA / RNA QC)
  • Covaris S2 AFA (highly-reproducible DNA fragmentation; recommended in many different sequencing library prep protocols)
  •  Precellys 24 Homogenisator (bead-based disruption/homogenization of a wide range of tissues)
  • Nanodrop 1000 Spectrophotometer (DNA / RNA quantification)
  • ABI SDS 7000 Real-Time PCR instrument

 

Our experienced staff provides support along the full experimental workflow: e. g. project design/counseling, cost estimation/preparation of quotes, choice of kits and protocols, sample QC, sample preparation, data QC, and data analysis.

KFB is a member of the SFB960  and a cooperation partner of the Regensburger Centrum für Interventionelle Immunologie (RCI).
