User labs

The European XFEL hosts multiple laboratories dedicated to user sample preparation.

One laboratory area specializes in biological sample preparation and quality control. Another area is dedicated to chemistry laboratories for sample preparation and characterization. In addition, there is work space for tests of experiment setups.

The Sample Environment group is leading the laboratories and provides user support. If you have any questions, please contact the Sample Environment group or the member of our group responsible for the particular lab. Responsibilities are listed at the specific laboratory web pages and in the relevant safety instructions.

Access to the laboratories will require general and specific safety training. Please see the call for proposal page and the UPEX pages for further information. Please be aware that additional onsite safety training might be necessary.
