Chinese and Belgian scientists have teamed up to set up a laboratory for advanced single cell analysis.

The Sino-Belgian Collaboration Laboratory for Single Cell Analysis Technologies opened on Friday at the Chinese National Compound Library in Zhangjiang of Pudong. It was set up by Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie-Flanders Institute of Biotechnology.

The lab intends to share resources, technology, talent and projects. The National Center for Drug Screening and Pudong Hospital affiliated to Fudan University are among the first batch to join the lab.

According to Wang Mingwei, director of the National Center for Drug Screening, the Belgian institute does the best single cell analysis in the world.

"In recent years, many labs have emerged, but they didn’t do so well. They have new equipment but they can’t do analysis well,” he said. “Analysis is of vital importance, and thus I chose to work with the best of the best in the world.”

Also, more hospitals will join the lab to use single cell analysis in the development of new drugs.

Single cell analysis can help researchers get to know the changes of a single cell instead of a group of cells, which can help to develop more effective and reliable drugs that can target problems more accurately.(SHINE)
