IFSC Shared Laboratory

The RD IFSC actively supports the development of existing and new cooperative research projects. In addition to supporting research projects and proposals, a key component is providing the necessary infrastructure. For this reason, the IFSC Shared Laboratory was established.

The RD IFSC is owner of several Shared-Lab instruments that can be used by every member and are taken care of by one member as general responsible for a certain instrument.

On the general assembly in January 2015 was decided that a new concept to manage the running costs of these instruments will be realized in 2015: The members of the RD IFSC will by measurement costs that are based on the actual costs of an analysis (consumables, maintenance, cost of running staff, partial contribution to repairs). All non-members have to pay a higher cost rate that takes into account additional the costs of invest and write-off.

Upon request to the Board it is possible to receive support or repairs based on a proper documentation of the performed measurements (log book).

If several members support the endeavor, it is possible to apply for adding additional instruments to the Shared-Lab instrument pool.
