The wide-ranging research areas of BOKU demand a huge variety of instrumentation and (large) equipment that can be accessed in the most convenient and economically efficient way via the BOKU Core Facilities. BOKU developed strong expertise in different fields of research. We are convinced that centering this profound knowledge and providing it to academia as well as industry can perfectly support scientists on their way to ground-breaking findings and discoveries.
Core Facility Biomolecular & Cellular Analysis
The BOKU Core Facility Biomolecular & Cellular Analysis (BmCA) is a state-of-the-art analytical laboratory with focus on biomolecular characterization and characterization of biomolecular interactions, protein crystallography as well as flow cytometry.
Core Facility Multiscale Imaging
Equipped with various light microscopes: confocal, wide-field, TIRF, laser micro-dissection, Raman chemical mapping, the BOKU Core Facility Multiscale Imaging offers access to fluorescence-based and label-free imaging techniques to the whole research community of Vienna.
Core Facility Mass Spectrometry
The BOKU Core Facility Mass Spectrometry (CFMS) provides high-end separation science and mass spectrometry for proteomics, glycomics, metabolomics as well as elemental and isotopic analysis in life, environmental and food sciences.
Core Facility Analysis of Lignocellulosics
The International Core Facility Analysis of Lignocellulosics (ALICE) with its twin lab at Abo Akademi University Turku, Finland, offers method development and state-of-the-art chromatographic, spectroscopic and chemical analysis for the advanced characterization of lignocellulose and biorefinery products.
Core Facility Bioinformatics
The BOKU Core Facility Bioinformatics offers computing and programming solutions to research groups, including most of the common workflows for data analysis, such as genome assembly, differential expression analysis, variant calling, and more.
Bylaws of the BOKU Core Facilities
The Service Unit BOKU Core Facilities is managed by two heads and an administrative staff person. Each BOKU Core Facility is run by an operative head as well as scientific and technical staff and counseled by a scientific head and an advisory board. The BOKU Core Facilities operate on basis of their bylaws, which can be viewed here.
