Research into biological and medical systems, such as cells, protein
structures and membranes is carried out in the MESA+ BioNanoLab. A wide range of microscopic and spectroscopic
techniques can be used in the laboratory to carry out highly detailed
measurements. Facilities are also available for conducting numerous
fully automated tests. For instance, this equipment is used for research into
potentially hazardous effects of all sorts of nano particles on humans and the
environment. A biochemical and cell culture laboratory is also
housed in the BioNanoLab.
facilities are frequently used by researchers of the University of Twente and
other knowledge institutes, they are also expressly available for use by other
parties such as hospitals and companies.
