When field samples have to be analyzed in such a way that there is no automated instrumentation available, or when samples have to be prepared in the lab or an experimental setup has to be created, this can be done in the Experimental lab. Most of the lab work here will be done by the lab users. The laboratory provides preexisting methods, of which the materials are available, as well as the opportunity to allow for experimentation to make new custom methods or to adjust existing ones. To accommodate all this, we have table space, chemicals, consumables and equipment, like for example titration setups and equipment for photometric measurements, available. Moreover, we offer gloveboxes and climate-controlled rooms for specific experimental conditions, cleanrooms for ultra clean work and BSL1 lab space for bacterial incubations, DNA extractions and PCR.
