Core Facility Platform Mannheim (CFPM)

Core Facilities are key elements of any modern research infrastructure and as such, contribute significantly to the advancement of science and education. Furthermore, they cover several strategically relevant positions of the Medical Faculty Mannheim. On one hand, they provide state-of-the-art technology and an operative platform for the Faculty’s research foci, with easy access, training, quality control, and service for all users. On the other hand, they are considered as central infrastructure to advance the Faculty’s research aims and all associated fields in Mannheim and beyond.

Our Core Facility Platform Mannheim, CFPM, consists of seven Core Facilities covering diverse areas and creating a Core Facility Pipeline, which operates research requests from basic analysis to imaging, microscopy, cell sorting and up to data analysis.


Services overview


Our Core Facilities offer different service levels:

Fullservice: User provides samples, sample preparation and analysis is particularly or completely covered by the Core Facility.

Full / Assisted Service: User provides ready-to-measure samples; the user can directly perform part of the analysis. An appropriate familiarization or device expertise is required.

New Technology Platform operational at the Proteomics Core Facility (PCF)

With the TripleTOF 6600+ mass spectrometer, the Proteomics Core Facility received a new technology platform from AB Sciex as new equipment. The PCF started the development of new workflows with the AB TripleTOF 6600+ mass spectrometer to expand services. The TripleTOF 6600+ combines fast and high sensitive scanning with the Data Independent Acquisition (DIA) approach (SWATH®) for quantitation of (almost) every detectable compound in a sample. We are interested in establishing quantitative workflows in order to enlarge the field of clinical proteomics studies. The combination of split free micro flow HPLC with SWATH® acquisition for accelerating quantitative proteomics studies is becoming more widespread, due to the improved robustness and throughput. With the µl-pick-up principle of the new HPLC system, technical replicas from smallest sample volumes are made possible.
