Labs and equipment

© Furtwangen University/Bernd Müller

The broad content of the Bio and Process Technology programme requires a variety of different labs with the relevant equipment. These range from labs for courses in the fundamentals of the natural sciences in chemistry, physics and biological subjects, such as micro-biology, molecular biology and biochemistry, to special labs for cell culture technology or the technical department. Most of these labs are registered with a safety level of S1.

The size of groups in practicals is based on the size of the room and the number of students, who usually work in pairs. Normally there are 2 supervisors for c. 20 students.
