Life Science Compute Cluster (LiSC)

The Life Science Compute Cluster (LiSC) is a medium-sized high-performance computing facility specialized in bioinformatics and computational life science, providing a rich, flexible, and up-to-date bioinformatics software repository, local storage space, and major biological databases on-site.

University of Vienna & Medical Univ. of Vienna

Joint Microbiome Facility (JMF)

The Joint Microbiome Facility (JMF) provides advanced facilities and expertise to researchers working in clinical, environmental, and other basic research fields to characterise and understand complex microbial communities, aiming to facilitate the investigation of clinically-relevant and environmental microbiomes, as well as advancing the field of microbiome research.

Large Instrument Facility, Isotope and Environmental Mass Spectometry

NanoSIMS & Raman

NanoSIMS is a type of advanced type of secondary ion mass spectrometer that can perform high-precision isotope analyses with sub-micrometer spatial resolution, making it ideal for visualizing the distribution of trace elements and stable isotopes in biological material at the subcellular level.

Stable Isotope Facility (SILVER)

SILVER is the largest Austrian facility for the analysis of stable isotopes of light elements in environmental samples. It is one of Europe's leading laboratories for ecological research with stable isotopes.

Environmental Mass Spectrometry

The Environmental Mass Spectrometry Facility (EMS) provides advanced mass spectrometers for the identification and detection of natural and anthropogenic contaminants and substances at ultra-trace levels in environmental samples, including stable isotope ratio measurements to trace sources and identify processes controlling the biogeochemical cycling of metals.
