We used the BioScreening service for RNA extraction of tissues and were extremely happy with the results. Their service was quick, communication was efficient and we can move on to downstream analysis safe in the knowledge the RNA we are using is of the highest quality.

Our facility offers services and expertise in two main areas:

High Throughput Screening (HTS)

HTS allows the rapid identification of novel targets, enabling researchers to identify new avenues for their research. The Bio Screening Facility uses state of the art equipment and biological reagents to cater for researchers working with both mammalian and microbial cell-based systems.

Biomarker Analysis

A biomarker is defined as a characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biological processes as well as pathogenic ones. Our team translates biologically relevant markers at cell/tissue level onto markers that can be measured and confidently assessed in humans or animals through methodological validation so that these biomarkers can be applied to wider areas of research.

Other Facilities at Newcastle

We are only one of a number of specialist facilities at Newcastle. Working in partnership with other facilities means we can provide end-to-end services tailored to your needs. For example:
