KI South core facilities

On this page you will find a list of equipment and core facilities for research and education available at KI Campus Flemingsberg.

Interested in using equipment or a core facility?

Get in touch with the core facility or the contact person for the instrument before attempting to use it.

Please note that some instruments are for common use, others belong to a research group (private) but may be available for use at the owner’s discretion.

It is generally required that you receive an introduction to any instrument before it is used. There may also be costs associated with the use of an instrument or a core facility.
