The Core operates on a 'technology hotel' model. We provide the technology, laboratory facilities, informatics infrastructure that project teams require to successfully run high throughput screens. Assay development and validation is carried out by the project team in consultation with the CSC. The CSC will further through the development and validation of automation protocols. The screen will then be run by the project team with the appropriate level of oversight and assistance from the CSC staff.

The Core is open to academic research groups from throughout the Netherlands. Project teams are expected to cover the costs of consumables and will be charged for equipment and facility usage that are required to cover maintenance costs. The Core does not aim to profit from any academic research projects. The Core is open to inquiries from commercial entities with regard to collaborations or fee-for-service projects but the focus of the Core is primarily on academic projects.

Interested parties should download the Project Form and contact David Egan to discuss the proposed project. Project proposals are subject to review by the CSC Project Advisory Committee.
