Nanofabrication Facility

We are pleased to announce that our new established Nanofabrication Facility will open its cleanroom in Q1 2017. It then will provide a cleanroom space of 420 sqm of new ISO 7 (class 10000), ISO 6 (class 1000) and with specific areas ISO 5 (class 100) - equipped with all the state of the art nanofabrication facilities.
​In general, the Nanofabrication Facility provides tools to researchers and students to support them in their research. Furthermore, it develops, optimizes and maintains micro- and nanofabrication processes.

Plant Facility

The Plant Facility supports the plant biologists at IST Austria with maintaining specific breeds (cultivating seedlings, growing plants, and harvesting seeds) in defined conditions. Fully operational since 2014, the Plant Facility is where mostly Arabidopsis and Tobacco species handled for current research projects.
​The facility has a maximum capacity of 288 trays and is fully equipped with LED lamps optimized for plant growth.
