Microfabrication

Microfabrication service (BEµFAB) aims to provide services of design and fabrication of new tools for applications in life sciences, so researchers can answer complex biological questions and accelerate their scientific findings. Creative and tailor-made solutions can be used for investigation of a wide range in vitro studies with biomolecules, cells and organoids up to small in vivo models.
Creativity, Making and Innovation – adding value to science – is our work field towards improved skills, ideas and techniques.
