Laboratories for Cell Studies
This facility includes a laboratory for Cell Culture and a laboratory for In Vitro Studies of radioactive compounds
The Cell Culture laboratory is equipped with CO2 incubators, biohazard cabinets, a low temperature freezer (-80ºC) and a refrigerated centrifuge with conventional rotors, and inverted and conventional optical microscopes. The laboratory for In Vitro Studies of radioactive compounds is equipped with a fume hood, instruments for radiation measurement and a microplate UV-vis spectrophotometer.
In the Cell Culture laboratory a small collection of primary and cancer cell lines of animal or human origin is used to evaluate non-radioactive and radioactive compounds. The cell studies include: cytotoxicity and radiotoxicity assays, uptake, internalization, externalization and subcellular distribution studies as well as immunoreactivity, receptor affinity and mechanistic studies.
