Technology platforms MIC, PROBE and BiSS are available to any and all higher education institutions in Norway

MIC, PROBE and BiSS (Biophysics, Structural Biology, and Screening) are core facilities at the Department of Biomedicine. The idea behind the core facility concept is to make sophisticated scientific equipment and highly specialized personnel available to a wide range of users. In turn, core facility users contribute financially to operational expenses through paying a set fee for services rendered.

The core facilities also conduct independent research and development within their respective scientific areas, and the goal is to evolve these into leaders of their fields, thus making it more attractive for research environments to employ core facility services versus running their own machine park.
