On-site facilities

  • The cell culture platform including the biological resource collection providing viable fresh tumor samples. This tissue bank has been designed to collect, store, and annotate lymph node, bone marrow, and blood samples obtained from lymphoma patients collected in several clinical centers in Brittany (BREHAT-OncoBretagne network), and from normal donors (French Blood Bank volunteers for peripheral blood, young children undergoing tonsillectomy, and patients with cardiac surgery for bone marrow samples).
  • The basic molecular biology platform
  • The flow cytometry platform equipped with 2 multicolor instruments:
    • a 3 lasers / 10 colors Gallios flow cytometer (Beckman Coulter) for basic analyses,
    • a 3lasers / 9-colors CyAn flow cytometer (Beckman Coulter) dedicated to the identification and the characterization of rare events like stromal cell subsets.
