Below is a brief description of the Research Laboratories and their activities.
In addition to the laboratories listed below, researchers are allowed to take advantage of the technological platforms (tissue processors, inclusion stations, microtomes, automatic TV showcases, automatic colorers) present in the Pathological Anatomy Service at the PST of Via Fantoli.
In addition, there is a close collaboration with the Fondazione MultiMedica ONLUS, which has two Molecular Biology laboratories and a laboratory for the preparation of primary crops, in order to guarantee the handling of biological tissues in a controlled environment and to ensure the reduction of risks of cross-contamination between isolated cell cultures and line cultures.
Within the MultiMedica Group, the Centro di Cinematografia Scientifica (Scientific Cinematography Centre) was established in 2012, a structure dedicated to the production and post-production of medical-scientific popular films, educational video-learnings and documentaries.
The Centre has audio/video instruments capable of producing high definition movies in 16/9 format and is also equipped with a recording studio with Chroma Key and Teleprompter (electronic pound) technology.
The different types of films produced include the following: video-abstract and scientific news on the results of research projects underway at our IRCCS and the MultiMedica Onlus Foundation; a promotional video for the Cinque per Mille for the MultiMedica Onlus Foundation; healthcare video-tutorials for patients in the Group’s Hospital Structures; in-depth video-interviews on in-depth information to specialist physicians; full recording of conferences and events organised by the MultiMedica Group.
All these videos can also be enjoyed through new computer and multimedia technologies, such as smartphones and tablets.
