The Core Laboratory, ZLF, contains different equipment that can be used by all members of the Faculty of Medicine.

The ZLF offers infrastructure, lab space, and know-how. ZLF employees perform a service for research. This includes providing assistance with using the equipment and advice for scientific questions. The concept aims at mastering organizational and technical-methodological tasks.

Additionally, resources are saved through the centralization of equipment and expertise. Collaboration between different research groups and Core Facilities results in synergy effects, that are used for mutual technical-methological support, making it possible to maintain a high level of research and service.

Access to the ZLF can be requested through the Administrative Office after a briefing on the equipment by the responsible equipment advisor.
