Infrastructure and resources
The BioVis platform of Uppsala University provides you with a unique combination of technology and know-how for visualization of biological samples at the tissue, cell and subcellular level. We specialize in microscopy, electron microscopy, flow cytometry and image analysis. We can offer state of the art electron- confocal and 2Photon microscopy, as well as analytical flow cytometry and cell sorting. The Medical & Pharmaceutical faculty at Uppsala University supports BioVis financially, thus the user fees can be kept low.

The Centre for Digital Humanities at Uppsala University (CDHU)
CDHU coordinates the digital transformation of Humanities and Social Sciences. The overarching infrastructure-oriented mission and ultimate goal of CDHU is financed by the Vice Chancellor’s office with the purpose to develop digital resources, procedures and effective workflows to support Humanities and Social Sciences research. CDHU operates in collaboration with other units at and at an inter/national level. The infrastructure includes both technical personnel as well as a cloud-based solution, supporting:
- storage and computational space for research implementation;
- access to multimodal tools and methods for data analysis (e.g. text, image, sound);
- proof-of-concepts for Humanities and Social Sciences research projects.

CIV - Centre for In Vivo at Uppsala University
(Log in for access)
CIV's mission is to meet researchers need for animal facilities including equipment and services at Uppsala University. CIV has the competence to guide you on how to start a research project using animals for scientific purposes and can provide advice on issues about animal welfare and how to implement the 3Rs (Replace, Reduce, Refine) in your project. CIV offers a range of services, from husbandry of animals to conducting procedures in your project.
The University's researach infrastrucure administration system (iLab) helps a core with the administrative workload of handling projects/bookings/orders for their services and resources.
Preclinical PET-MRI Platform
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPECT) are emerging methodologies in the field of molecular imaging. At the platform we bridge the gap between basic research in medicinal chemistry and clinical application of molecular imaging with PET, SPECT, MRI and CT.

SIMPLER, Swedish Infrastructure for Medical Population-based Life-course and Environmental Research, is a national research infrastructure for both hypothesis driven and data driven epidemiological research. 110,000 women and men, the Swedish Mammography Cohort and the Cohort of Swedish Men, have regularly responded to health, diet and lifestyle questionnaires, and clinical subcohorts of 13,500 participants contribute with clinical data and biological samples. SIMPLER is hosted by Uppsala University and managed by a consortia consisting of Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, Chalmers University of Technology and Örebro University with support from Uppsala, Västmanland and Örebro regions.

Uppsala Biobank and Uppsala BioLab
Uppsala Biobank and Uppsala BioLab is an infrastructure for medical research and a center of competence for biobank related matters. We are a collaboration between Uppsala University and Region Uppsala and represent the only biobank for these two principals. Uppsala Biobank offers services for collection, storage and withdrawal of samples. Uppsala BioLab offers services for DNA extraction, cell preparation from blood and bone marrow, analysis of biomarkers and evaluation of methods and instruments to scientist and companies.
