State Collection of Zoology

A modern molecular lab (S2) has been established at the State Collection of Zoology and is available for sequence techniques. The ZSM lab features a complete setup for single tube or 96-well DNA purification, PCR / cycle sequencing and cleanup. A QIAGEN BioRobot 3000 may aid in liquid handling processes, from DNA extraction to PCR pipetting.
