Molecular Biology and Next Generation Technology

The Molecular Biology and Next Generation Technology Core provides a wide range of unique services to the Einstein community. In a new emphasis, the core is dedicated to bringing state of the art methods in microRNA (miRNA) research to biomedical scientists with all levels of expertise. The core provides services ranging from classical qPCR and RT-qPCR plus specialized preparation of miRNA and development of targeted genotyping assays.


  • qPCR and RT-qPCR services; training and use of new ABI 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System; help with assay development
  • Fujifilm FLA 5100 scanner for radioautography, fluorescence or chemifluorescence scan of Southern, Northern and Western Blots  
  • FluorChemQ imaging of agarose or polyacrylamide gels, protein, and nucleic acids blots probed with fluorescence or chemiluminescence
  • MicroRNA profiling using custom made miRNA microarrays plus help with data analysis
  • NanoDrop2000 spectrophotometer, Gene Gnome Syngene Bio imager and BMG Fluoristar Optima  instruments
  • Help with classic DNA, cDNA and miRNA cloning
  • Library preparation for next generation sequencing for both Illumina and Ion Torrent instruments
  • Help with exosome studies and with characterization of microbiome
  • Core interactions with Next Generation Sequencing Facilities
