Following the evaluation of the SciLifeLab infrastructure in 2016, the SciLifeLab Board decided on the budget for the facilities for 2017-2018. In addition, the platform structure of the center has been reorganized as shown at Technologies & Services.
“The reorganization is in line with the SciLifeLab mission to provide front line technologies for the benefit of the Swedish research society.” Said Annika Jenmalm Jensen, Interim Director of Infrastructure at SciLifeLab. “To live up to this we need to regularly evaluate the infrastructure and we are planning on having international evaluations every 4-years when also new technologies will be brought in.”

Five new national facilities, which applied as candidate facilities in 2016, will be starting their operations within SciLifeLab officially in July 2017:

Following the board decision, four facilities (Karolinska High Throughput Center, Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy, Fluorescence Tissue Profiling and Tissue Profiling) will be phased out.
