Basic laboratories are situated close to the MX beamlines and full biochemical facilities are available in the EMBL User Lab in the EMBL building on-site. Special chemicals, gases and environments (such as glove boxes, P2 biohazard facilities and propane) are also available with advance notice. The basic labs near the beamlines are equipped for sample preparation and mounting (microscopes, pH meter, balance, pippettmen, fridges etc). A cold room is available in Sector 18 of ESRF (18.0.03).

Specific requests need to be made through the local contacts for other equipment or facilities such as protein preparation or propane freezing. Requests for special equipment, sample environments, chemicals or gases should be passed to your local contact well in advance of the experiment.
