The Core Facilities unit provides services and support to the IBEC laboratories daily operations. This comprises the management, organization and maintenance of the labs, including working regulations and safety. Allows internal research scientists open access to centralized equipment. Training and information for students and researchers who join the institute about the organization and functioning of IBEC spaces. Configuration and launch of new laboratories.
Apart from routine laboratory equipment (Common Core Basics), Core Facilities provides additional sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment to support the groups’ research. They are distributed in four different categories: MicroFabSpace (open to external institutions and companies), BioSpace, ChemSpace and Microscopy Characterization (partially open to external institutions and companies).
