SP8 Confocal Microscope (Leica)

The system in reverse configuration is equipped with 4 lasers covering excitation wavelengths 405, 488, 561, and 638nm. Fluorescence signals are collected on 2 PMT detectors and 2 high-sensitivity HyD detectors. A thermostatic and CO2-regulated chamber and a motorized turntable are installed on the microscope for kinetic studies and XYZT acquisitions.

This microscope is suitable for confocal, wide-field and/or multi-position imaging.

    Mass cytometer HELIOS (Fluidigm)

    As a complementary tool to flow cytometers, the mass cytometer considerably increases the number of parameters that can be analyzed (>40), while eliminating the problems of overlapping fluorescence spectrums observed with conventional cytometry.

    La recherche en immunothérapie

    Premier centre d’immunothérapie en Europe, Gustave Roussy poursuit sa stratégie de développement des immunothérapies et lance un programme médico-scientifique pour mieux comprendre leurs toxicités afin de les prévenir et ainsi améliorer la prise en charge des patients.

    Dans la lancée de son précédent programme d’immunothérapie GRIP, initié en 2015, Gustave Roussy fédère les différentes disciplines et expertises de ses équipes pour accélérer la recherche en immunothérapie avec un volet spécifique dédié à la prise en charge de ses effets secondaires.
