Core facilities at the Faculty of Medicine

Many researchers at the faculty are dependent on advanced and expensive research infrastructure. We have several core facilities to meet this need. A core facility is a specialist laboratory serving researchers from both within and outside its own institution.

More information about the role of core facilities can be found on the about core facilities page.

Advanced Electron Microscopy

We offer high-end imaging technology based on Transmission Electron Microscopy.

Advanced Light Microscopy, Gaustad

We provide services within super-resolution microscopy, live cell microscopy, confocal scanning microscopy, wide-field microscopy, and image analysis.

Advanced Light Microscopy, Montebello

Our services include confocal microscopy, live-cell imaging, super-resolution microscopy (SIM and STORM), TIRF, and photokinetics.


We offer services within bioinformatics, including analysis of next-generation sequencing data, microarray data, protein structure analysis, statistical genomics and access to useful databases and web services.

Chemical Biology Screening

Discover small molecules to probe, explore and modulate biological systems.

Clinical Nutrition

We have advanced equipment for use in clinical nutrition studies.

Electron Microscopy Laboratory

We offer services within transmission electron microscopy.

Flow Cytometry

We provide services within flow cytometry analysis and cell sorting.


We have an extensive set of technologies to study genome structure, dynamics and function.

Human pluripotent stem cells

We provide services associated with production, characterization and differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells.

Large Animal Research

We assist scientists who want to do research on large animals.

Norwegain Sequencing Centre

We offer sequencing services.

Norwegian Transgenic Center

We specialize in advanced transgene technology.

Preclinical MR

We do non-invasive imaging and high-resolution magnetic resonance spectroscopy.


We offer services in mass spectrometry-based proteomics.

Structural Biology

We provide services within structural biology, and assist with virtual screening for drug design projects.

Translational MRI Neuroimaging

We develop new and advanced MR methods for the study of brain diseases.

Two-photon microscopy

The Norwegian Brain Initiative (NORBRAIN) is a large-scale national infrastructure project addressing the basic principles of brain operation. We have a core facility for two-photon laser scanning microscopy.


We offer access to fish housing, breeding and use of several instruments specific for research on zebrafish.
