The unique Septomics research approach can be implemented by using state-of-the-art cell and molecular biology laboratory equipment as well as an automated sample bank, the Septomics "Biobank".
The Septomics "Biobank" is a cryostorage system where sepsis pathogen samples as well as patients' blood and tissue material can be stored over years automatically and with maintaining good quality. The samples are used for developing and testing infection models. But samples are not simply stored: they are linked to the documented medical history data of the patients. This allows Septomics researchers to compare genetic characteristics of numbers of individuals with the respective disease progression data.
In addition to the "Biobank" the Septomics scientists have access to a state-of-the-art technical infrastructure including an Orbitrap mass spectrometer, two microarray plattforms, a laser-scanning confocal mircroscope, an in-vivo imaging system and flow cytometers.
