CORBEL Catalogue of Services
Why do we need a Catalogue of Services?
Currently there are 13 biological and medical sciences Research Infrastructures (RIs) in Europe, all of them working jointly together in CORBEL towards offering shared services for life-science.
All RIs offer services, i.e. researchers from academia and industry can access their facilities, technologies and expertise. Services can simply be consultation, access to experts, but also access to data and biological samples, use of data analysis tools, access to facilities (e.g. highly specialised microscopes) plus support from technicians and much more.
The CORBEL Catalogue of Services is the first tool to list the main services of all these RIs at a glance and it aims to facilitate the utilisation of RI services by researchers from all over the world.
The Catalogue of Services as displayed below aims to provide you a basic overview on existing services within distinct thematic fields.
You can either use the Catalogue of Services to identify a single RI to help you with your work or you can create your own CORBEL service pipelines, i.e. using several RIs subsequently.
Examples of service pipelines are provided here.

EATRIS supports researchers in translating their findings into novel interventions including preventive, diagnostic or therapeutic products up to clinical proof of concept. The infrastructure comprises over 90 leading research institutions in the translational field located in 13 countries across Europe. EATRIS also supports the validation and development of novel tools for precision medicine and translational research in drug development. By providing access to accredited facilities as well as market-oriented expertise, including innovation management, regulatory and health-technology assessment, your validation needs are covered in a one-stop shop.
Services offered by EATRIS include
- support funding applications (Identification of partners for consortium building, assessment of the project plan's impact and innovation potential)
- translational research facilities and expertise for development of novel biomarkers, diagnostics and therapeutics
- molecular, functional & hybrid imaging technologies, preclinical models, samples, patient cohorts, GMP manufacturing
- regulatory and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) expertise
- advice on intellectual property issues and industry partnering strategy (innovation management)
Why to work with us
Euro-BioImaging (EuBI) provides open physical user access to a broad range of state-of-the-art imaging technologies for life scientists in Europe and beyond. In the future, it also will offer image data support and training for infrastructure users and providers and continuously evaluate and include new imaging technologies to ensure cutting-edge services in a sustainable manner.
Through Euro-BioImaging (EuBI), researchers can have access to imaging instruments, receive expert technical assistance and support both with project planning and during project execution. In the future, EuBI will offer image data support and training for infrastructure users and providers. Since May 2016, EuBI has opened its doors to the scientific community with the start of Interim Operation. This means that all researchers at any stage of their career can now request access to 36 imaging technologies hosted at 28 EuBI Node Candidates (specialized imaging facilities hosting the technology and expertise) located in 11 European countries and at EMBL.
Please visit the EuBI Web Access Portal for more information about the offered imaging technologies as listed below:
- biological Imaging: Laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM / CLSM), Spinning disc confocal microscopy (SDCM), Deconvolution widefield microscopy, Multiphoton microscopy systems, Total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRF), Fourier transform infrared imaging (FTIR)
- super resolution microscopy: Stimulated emission depletion microscopy (STED), Photo activated localization microscopy (PALM), Stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM), Reversible saturable optical fluorescence transitions (RESOLFT), Ground state depletion microscopy (GSD) / Ground state depletion microscopy followed by individual molecule return (GSDIM), 4Pi microscopy
- functional imaging: Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS), Fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy (FCCS), Fluorescence-lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM), Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), Raman spectroscopy, High-throughput microscopy, Electron microscopy, Correlative light electron microscopy (CLEM)
