Core Facilities

Nanjing Women and Children's healthcare Hospital has interdisciplinary basic, translational, and clinical research core facilities available to all its faculty members. Services for non-institute investigators are available on a fee-for-service basis as time permits.

  • Basic Facilities

The NMCHI Molecular biology Core Facility
The Molecular biology Core offers all genomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics related services include vector construction, PCR, western blot, lentivirus expression, adenovirus expression, TALEN, and CRISPR/Cas9.  

The NMCHI Cell Culture and Functional Testing Core Facility
The Cell Culture and Functional Testing Core offers all cell-related services include cell isolation, digestion, purification, culture, morphology, fluorescence microscopic photograph, cell proliferation, cell apoptosis and cell flow cytometry test.

The NMCHI Histology and Gene Expression Core Facility
The Histology and Gene Expression Core offers all histology-related services include tissue processing, embedding, sectioning, staining, immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization.

The NMCHI Model Animal Core Facility
The Model Animal Core provides in vivo animal models include zebrafish and nematode. The physiological mechanism of congenital heart disease and obesity are studied using different transgenic and knockout zebrafish or nematode animal models.

  • Special Facilities

The NMCHI Adipocytes Study Core Facility
The Adipocytes Study Core offers all adipose cells related services include white/brown adipose tissue separation, adipose stem cells isolation, cell culture, induced cell differentiation, oil red staining, and triacylglycerol test.

The NMCHI Non-coding RNA Core Facility
The Non-coding RNA Core offers all microRNA, lncRNA related services include RNA extraction, Real Time PCR, RIP and ChRIP.

The NMCHI iPSCs Core Facility
The iPSCs Core offers all stem cells related services include isolating umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells, inducing mesenchymal stem cells to be adipocytes, and inducing adult cells to be pluripotent stem cells.

The NMCHI nano-test Core Facility
The nano-test Core provides nano antibodies for early diagnosis of breast cancer, Down syndrome and other diseases.
