The Life Science Facility at IST Austria supports experimental biologists in their research work.

The main objectives of the facility are:

  • Provide a laboratory infrastructure for wet lab biological sciences (such as tissue culture facilities, cold storage devices and histology equipment) that enables the scientists to apply a brought spectrum of standard and advanced technologies in their work.
  • Provide best possible laboratory and surrounding conditions to allow the scientists to focus on their research work as much as possible.
  • Provide the necessary infrastructure that enables the scientists to ensure compliance of their work with the current Austrian legislation.
  • Provide the necessary means to enable safe working conditions within the laboratories.
  • Supply experimental resources (media, animals, plants, etc) at a consistently high level to allow the scientists to focus on their scientific questions as much as possible.
