Technology platforms

Missions :

  • The Animal Experimentation technical platform is in charge of the implementation of experimental procedures as part of protocols established by researchers, as well as the breeding management of murine strains.

Activities :

  • The technical platform manage the breeding of around thirty different mouse strains in connection with researchers, including some intricate transgenic strain. Several murine models are used, notably basic inbred strains as well as lupic mice models.
  • The Animal Experimentation platform team carries out the protocols requested by the different teams of the Unit in compliance with ethics and regulations in force.
  • The platform agents also perform different molecular biology techniques to genotype the Unit’s transgenic strains.

Composition :

  • 2 dedicated technicians

Missions :

We produce, by solid phase synthesis and Fmoc strategy, a wide variety of peptides for our customers (public research or industry)


Under standard conditions, the length of the peptides ranges from 2 to 60 AA, the synthesis scale from 25 to 100 micromoles, and the purity is greater than 95%

Many modifications can be introduced: N-terminal acetylation, C-terminal amidation, biotinylation, conjugation (to KLH, BSA…), incorporation of exotic amino acid or fluorescent tags…

The peptides are purified and analyzed by RP-HPLC, lyophilized and then characterized by mass spectrometry (LC/MS)

The peptides are supplied with an analysis report (HPLC and mass spectrum)

Presentation of the UPR3572 imaging technical platform

The imaging technical platform belongs to the UPR3572 research unit of the IBMC. Its objective is to make microscopy tools and techniques available to this unit to answer the biological questions raised during the study of immune responses in normal or pathological contexts. The technical platform also works in collaboration with the UPR9002 and UPR9022 research units of the institute and interacts closely with other Strasbourg imaging platforms.
