Facilities for micro & macro-organisms

Aquaria and culture facilities for both micro- and macro-organisms are the heart of EMBRC’s marine research capacity. A wide range of facilities for maintenance, culture and experimental work on polar, cold, cool temperate, warm temperate and sub-tropical species is available. The facilities include in situ installations, mesocosms, bioreactors, and licensed tanks for holding marine vertebrates. Facilities are equipped for the manipulation of environmental conditions (e.g., temperature, pH, and light) and with water purification.

The facilities include:

  • Aquaria and tanks
  • Mesocosms
  • Climate controlled rooms
  • Wet laboratories
  • Dry laboratories
