Welcome to the Center for Advanced Research Technologies
Providing leading-edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
A Message From The Director
The Center for Advanced Research Technologies (CART) provides an extensive spectrum of trained personnel, innovative, leading-edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Our highly skilled and continually trained technical personnel provide the proper and timely expertise to bridge the gaps between sophisticated instrumentation and biology. We favor an integrated approach to research yielding more insight and an answer to today's increasingly complex questions.
Whatever it is you need to enhance your research, the Center for Advanced Research Technologies has it, will get it, will do it, or will invent it.

10X Genomics - Visium Spatial Gene Expression Technology.
At the Genomics Research Center, we have utilized the Fresh Frozen Visium technology for many tissue types.
Pair histological spatial information with whole transcriptome data to better understand many research questions such as the spatial organization of cells and disease complexity. Visium Spatial Gene Expression technology is available with H&E for morphological context as well as with Immunofluorescence to co-detect proteins and gene expression from the same tissue section.
10X Genomics has announced the release of Visium FFPE that is compatible with FFPE tissues. Contact us for more information on this approach and how it compares to the Fresh Frozen Visium workflow.
Contact us to learn more about the technology and scheduling a consultation for a spatial gene expression study.
