The Scientific Service Units are one of IST Austria´s strategic key factors. We pool cutting-edge equipment used by more than one research group to avoid a duplication of efforts and expenses. This combined with the expert know-how of the facility members allow all scientists to perform research at an internationally competitive level.

The broad range of services is reflected in the facilities that are currently available for our researchers and external partners:

  • Bioimaging Facility
  • Electron Microscopy Facility
  • Library
  • Life Science Facility
  • Miba Machine Shop
  • Nanofabrication Facility
  • Preclinical Facility
  • Scientific Computing

Like IST Austria itself, the number of services, equipment and employees is constantly growing. According to the needs of our existing research groups and also to support the start-up of new faculty members the best possible way, we always strive to adapt and expand in all fields.
