ALERT

In Observance of U.S. Holiday, Memorial Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday May 27th, 2019. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday May 28th, 2019. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

Molecular Biology and Next Generation Technology / Hepatic Animal Models, Stem Cells, and Cell Therapy Core

Molecular Biology and Next Generation Technology Core Overview and Services

The Molecular Biology and Next Generation Technology Core provides a wide range of unique services to the Einstein community. In a new emphasis, the core is dedicated to bringing state of the art methods in microRNA (miRNA) research to biomedical scientists with all levels of expertise. The core provides services ranging from classical qPCR and RT-qPCR plus specialized preparation of miRNA and development of targeted genotyping assays.


  • qPCR and RT-qPCR services; training and use of new ABI 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System; help with assay development
  • Fujifilm FLA 5100 scanner for radioautography, fluorescence or chemifluorescence scan of Southern, Northern and Western Blots  
  • FluorChemQ imaging of agarose or polyacrylamide gels, protein, and nucleic acids blots probed with fluorescence or chemiluminescence
  • MicroRNA profiling using custom made miRNA microarrays plus help with data analysis
  • NanoDrop2000 spectrophotometer, Gene Gnome Syngene Bio imager and BMG Fluoristar Optima  instruments
  • Help with classic DNA, cDNA and miRNA cloning
  • Library preparation for next generation sequencing for both Illumina and Ion Torrent instruments
  • Help with exosome studies and with characterization of microbiome
  • Core interactions with Next Generation Sequencing Facilities

Hepatic Animal Models, Stem Cells, and Cell Therapy Core Overview and Services

This Core breeds unique animals of interest, reproduces animal models, provides training in procedures and consultation in experimental design.  New technologies are developed for animal and human stem cell and cell therapy studies. Primary animal or human liver cells of consistently high quality are isolated and distributed. Liver cells generated from pluripotent stem cells with highly efficient differentiation protocols can also be provided.  Animal use requires ACUC approval for the investigator’s project. Disease models include analbuminemic rat, Gunn rat, LEC rat and Atp7b-/- mice (Copper toxicosis),  and hemophilia A mice, along with additional rat and mouse models for cell transplantation research.  The Core offers training in specialized liver procedures, e.g., partial hepatectomy, bile duct ligation or cannulation, portal vein cannulation, liver perfusion, induction of liver injury or fibrosis, etc. The Core can provide specialized cell culture media and additives for hepatocytes.
