Bioscience Laboratory

The Biosciences Laboratory is the heart of research and advanced molecular diagnostics activities at IRST. The Laboratory is a multifunctional facility which, in its most recent organisational set-up, is divided into two macrostructures: the Advanced and Predictive Diagnostics Area and the Research Area, organised into six sectors. The Laboratory - which covers approximately 500 square metres - has state-of-the-art instrumentation for genetic analysis (sequencers), identification of biomarkers, the study of circulating tumour cells, deep imaging (confocal microscope), as well as an enclosure equipped for the use of the Zebrafish animal model. The indicators for scientific production and participation in national and international calls for tenders in 2021 showed increased growth: +23% impact factor points and +70% calls submitted.
