Located in Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU) Research and Development Complex (RDC), QBRI’s state-of-the-art laboratories are major hubs in driving forward cutting edge research and innovation in Qatar and the region. The institute’s core facilities are located in the same building as QBRI’s research teams.
The mission of QBRI's Microscopy and Imaging Core is to offer researchers efficient, reliable and innovative imaging solutions with the highest standards of instrumentation, accuracy, quality control and professional expertise.
This is achieved by providing access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and the expertise of highly skilled professionals in the fields of microscopy and imaging. The unit is equipped with the most advanced and automated digital microscopy and live-cell imaging instrumentation.
These technologies allow investigators to perform a wide variety of imaging research experiments that help them answer important biomedical questions related to their field of study. The core also provides training and easy access to researchers as well as services that range from routine microscopy to cutting-edge live-animal multi-photon microscopy.
The core’s expertise and services cover advice and support in the planning and evaluation of histopathology experiments, tissue processing and sectioning, cryopreservation, histological staining methods and laser caption microdissection microscopy.
The mission of the QBRI Flow Cytometry Core is to offer researchers efficient, reliable and innovative flow cytometry and cell sorting solutions with the highest standards of instrumentation, quality control, biosafety and productivity.
This is achieved by providing access to state-of-the-art instruments and professional flow cytometry and cell sorting services and is supported by highly motivated staff with extensive skills and profound expertise in the field of flow cytometry.
In addition, the flow cytometry core provides support and guidelines with regards to flow cytometry education, operation of instruments, software workflows and Biosafety to fulfill the mission of a fruitful, collaborative, and highly innovative environment for research and development.
