Before you start working in a lab, you'll get a brief overview of safety, evacuation, waste management and general rules of conduct. Talk to the reception staff about this.
In most labs there is running surface and deep water from the fjord. In some of the labs there is deionized water and in several places in the main building there is access to Milli-Q water.
Some spaces and resources are common to all guests, such as washing room, weighing room, autoclave, freeze dryer and some of the microscope stations. There, joint responsibility for order and democratic sharing of resources applies.
Some equipment and some labs belong to one of the station's permanent researchers and may only be used after agreement with the responsible researcher.
Most of what you may need in the form of instruments and equipment can be borrowed in one of our stores. If you need liquid nitrogen, dry ice or laboratory gas, it is also possible to order.
If you are unsure of how something works, where to find specific things or if something breaks, please contact the lab manager.
