R+D Services Platform

This platform provides services in the areas of biology, chemistry and bioinformatics, using cutting edge technology and highly trained professionals. It functions with offices in Santiago and in Quillaipe (Region X los Lagos), both implemented with high standards of quality. Its laboratories have capacities in molecular biology such as the latest generation DNA sequencing (via MiSeq Illumina), qPCR for species quantification, and cytometric tools, among others, for obtaining information about cellular populations in the immunology, pharmacology and hematology areas.

The volume of data obtained with these techniques can be analyzed in detail with the bioinformatic tools developed in the laboratory. This area develops experimental designs to meet express needs and provides clear and precise solutions for the requirements of external clients as well as for the Center’s different business areas.
