Dear users,

we would like to inform you about the CF BIC operation during the summer holidays. Due to the reduced number of CF staff on site, there will be a limited availability of some BIC services (AUC, ITC, crystallization). See the information below for more details. Also, the training of new users may not be possible all the time and we cannot guarantee full user support (advanced experimental support, consultation with experts). If you plan to undergo training for some instrument during the summer, we encourage you to contact us first and discuss the details in advance. Instruments in user mode should be available for trained users during the whole summer. In case of any questions, contact us via email (
