The MCBI has outstanding facilities to perform state-of-the-art research. Approaches that are applied range from well validated in vitro and in vivo models with the possibility to validate findings in patient material. Advanced cellular identification and imaging systems are operational (like CYTOF analysis, FACS sorting and analysis, confocal microscopy, life cell imaging) as well as biochemical design and analysis by peptide synthesis and Mass Spectometry. Well characterized in vivo and in vitro models assist in the identification of a number of crucial molecules and processes involved in the development of chronic inflammatory diseases.
The department's Technology Core Facility comprises a Microscopy Unit (AOI2M Unit)  a Biochemistry Unit (GlycO2Peptide Unit), Antibody production Unit and a Flow cytometry Unit  (O2Flow Unit).
