CEIDR Core Facilities and Services

Overview of Services

 

Welcome to the Center for Experimental Infectious Disesase Research (CEIDR: http://www.cobre.ceidr.lsu.edu/) Core management website admisitered by the Louisiana State University, School of Veterinary Medicine, Division of Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (BIOMMED).

 

The CEIDR iLAB portal provides access to scheduling for training and reserving core equipment, service requests and purchasing from select vendors for discounted pricing and shipping. CEIDR is home to a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment supporting both infectious disease research and basic life sciences. A major goal of the Center is to build on the synergistic value of having diverse services and technologies available in a centralized facility. Shared resources in CEIDER inlclude labs in the LSU Vet School, LSU main campus and the Tulane National Primate Research Center (TNPRC) in Covington, Louisiana. The equipment in these facilities is available for research and training, and the development of new methods and applications.

 

 

GeneLab: Real-time PCR, high throughput DNA and RNA sequecing, digital PCR, next generation sequencing and bioinfornatics. GeneLab also operates a Supply Center offering scientific reagents and supplies from Life Technologies (formerly Applied Biosystems and Invitrogen Corp). Discounted pricing has been negotiated with these vendors to ensure that researchers get the most value for their money. In addition, free shipping will be offered to all orders shipped directly to GeneLab. For most orders this is an additional savings of 15-25%. Investigators have the cost-free option of picking up their orders from GeneLab (located in room 3212 of the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine) or having their orders delivered for an additional minimal fee.

 

Protein Laboratory (PLC): Protein expression and purification, peptide synthesis and analysis, protein interactions


Molecular Immunopathology (MIPC) : Advanced imaging and microsopy, flow cytometry, cell sorting, luminex, histopathology, immunochemistry, multiplex cytokine arrays

 

 

-These services are part of COBRE- and INBRE-funded research endeavors. Fee policies are governed by federal regulations and university guidelines for core facilities.
