Neurocentre Magendie

Technical platforms

The research in neuroscience currently requires significant technological resources and technical expertise. This is why the Neurocentre Magendie has developed an ambitious policy of pooling together equipments, techniques and technicians to facilitate the research activity of the laboratories of the Center and their interactions.
For example, the Neurocentre offers a platform for the maintenance and the genotyping of transgenic mouse lines, an analytical platform unique in France for the measurement of neurotransmitters (such as endocannabinoids, neurosteroids, amino acids and catecholamines), a platform for automated quantitative PCR which allows analyzing the expression of hundreds of genes at the same time, a laser microdissection service and a platform for cellular imaging. These platforms are accessible to all the members of the Centre as well as to the scientific community of the Aquitaine Region.
