Facilities and Services

Center for Life Science Technologies (CLST) and a part of Quantitative Biology Center (QBiC) makes a wide range of state-of-the-art research facilities, equipment and support services available to its scientific staff and collaborators. Core facilities include a 24,000-cage mouse facility and a research aquarium, common-use space on every laboratory floor and well-staffed onsite support laboratories for mutant mouse production, genomic sequencing, bio-imaging and electron microscopy. The onsite availability of this full spectrum of support and services is complemented by the concentration of expertise, enabling even new users to develop new skill sets and work at the cutting edge. And Kobe’s ever-growing biomedical research park already plays home to more than 300 biotech and research firms, meaning that most any service not found with RIKEN is available just a stone’s throw away.
