Satellite laboratories for the Node will be based in the Medical School (the Biobank Laboratory), the Institute of Genetics (the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research), the Institute of Transplantation (Freeman Hospital) and the Northern Institute of Cancer Research. The location of satellite laboratories in the Medical School will raise the profile of Molecular Pathology amongst academic staff and will facilitate the delivery of academic training in the subject.
Some of the facilities available in the Node satellite laboratories include:
- Next-Generation Sequencing
- Single Cell and Genotyping / Gene Expression and digital PCR
- Automated Liquid Handling
- Laser Capture Microdissection
- Ancillary equipment associated with NGS library preparation

Newcastle University Infectious Disease Facility
Newcastle University’s Infectious Diseases Facility is a containment level 3 asset that allows the safe use and handling of high risk samples and infectious microbiological agents.
The only such research facility in the North East of England provides the opportunity for researchers to include high hazard pathogens in their research. Such pathogens include Bacillus anthracis, verocytotoxigenic E. coli strains, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, prions, betacoronaviruses, hepatitis B, C, D and E viruses, Dengue viruses and HIV. In addition, Class 3 GM contained use work is possible.
The Facility is available to both Newcastle University staff and other academic and commercial enterprises.
