Services offer


Chemical Analysis Service (SAQ)


The purpose of the Chemical Analysis Service (SAQ) is to support research by using the analytical instrumentation with which it is equipped. SAQ performs chemical analysis in multitude of materials, both in investigation and in control of raw materials, advices in the resolution of analytical problems, develops and validates specific procedures for the resolution of concrete problems.




Applied Statistics Service (SEA)


Applied Statistics Service (SEA) offers statistical consulting and technical advice in data analysis. SEA offers services aimed at the development of research projects and knowledge transfer through specialized consulting, on-demand services, expert reports and technical training in different areas among which we would highlight biostatistics, industrial production, social sciences, finances and risk management.




Cell Culture, Antibody Production and Cytometry Service (SCAC)


Cell Culture, Antibody Production and Citometry Service (SCAC) provides scientific and technical support in the field of biosciences, using cell culture technology and analyzing and sorting different cell populations by flow cytometry. We are also experts in the production of mono and polyclonal antibodies and in the immunoassays development.




X-Ray Diffraction Service (SDRX)


The Service has the suitable equipment and knowledge for dealing with X-ray diffraction (powder and single crystal techniques). Samples usually come from the fields of Geology, Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Material Science but also from other fields such as Archaeology, Medicine and so on.




Core Microscopy Facility (SM)


Microscopy Service has the infrastructure required for most of the scientific experimental fields that need to use advanced optical and electronic techniques.




Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Service (SRMN)


The main objective of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Service (SRMN) is to make and facilitate the acquisition, processing, analysis and Interpretation of spectroscopic and imaging data obtained using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques.




Experimental Farm and Fields Service (SGCE)


The Experimental Farm and Fields Service dispose of spaces, facilities, material equipment and personnel as to support research requiring the use of animals or plants. Its functions consist on the maintenance of the animals in a good welfare state, and organizing and developing studies with different farm animal species. All projects are developed with the authorization of the UAB Committee for animal research.




Stabling Service (SE)


The Rodent animal facility (Servei d'Estabulari) of the UAB is dedicated to the generation and housing of animals used in scientific studies. There are boxes to house, both commercially available and genetically modified, rodents (rats, mice and hamsters). The Rodent animal facility allows conducting studies in basic and applied research in fields such as neuropsychology, cancer, physiology, toxicology, psychology, reproduction, clonation and others.
