About us

The washing unit offers washing of laboratory glass and plastic, provides central washing of working clothing, GMO waste decontamination and elimination of hazardous waste.

The media preparation unit offers preparation of cultivation media and solutions for tissue culture, preparation of bacteriological media and plates, and preparation of “custom-made” solutions. Further, the unit offers vapour sterilization of solutions and vapour or hot-air sterilization of material, as well as dry ice supplies.

Both these units are located on the basement floor of building SO 001. The space is divided into two parts – briefly, to the “dirty” corridor, where dirty glass, clothing and waste for decontamination should be deposited, and the “clean” part, where the washed glass, sterile packed material, clean clothing, etc., is returned to the users.
