Chemistry and Biology Laboratories

The Chemistry and Biology Laboratory group manages the laboratory infrastructures of the Soft Matter and Biology Division, as well as offers training and technical support for users of the synchrotron light source Sirius, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), allowing them to work safely in handling chemical reagents, in biological experiments, and in preparing and adapting samples for different experimental techniques.

Among the laboratories under the responsibility of the group are the Chemical Laboratory, for collective use, prepared to meet the needs of internal and external researchers, the Biology Laboratory, dedicated to assist users in the preparation of biological samples such as cells and tissues, as well as the Crio Laboratory, dedicated to sample preparation (mostly of biological origin) in cryogenic environments.
