Laboratory for Macromolecules and Bioimaging LSB
MissionExcellence from source to detector / excellence in life and materials science
We are at the forefront of method and instrumentation developments to render otherwise inaccessible information accessible via X-ray based techniques. In collaborations with Swiss and international scientists we employ these strengths for state-of-the-art research with focus on life and materials science. We are competent partners for academic and industrial users.
