BESSY II User Facilities
The User Facilites at BESSY II hold pumping stations, leak detection, a limited selection of vacuum components and assemblies as well as technical gases (He, Nitrogen, Hydrogen) and liquid nitrogen incl. tranportation dewars. Storage spaces are available for packaging materials and gases.
A mechanical workshop as welll as a chemistry and a biological laboratory are available for users. To gain access to these facilities please contact the User Assistant ('Hallendienst'). Prior to using these facilities, you must have completed the appropriate online Safety Training Module in GATE and in case of the biological laboratory you have to register as can be seen below.
Further facilites are available on request.
The Mechanical Workshop is situated in Buidling 15.8 (see sketch). It comprises:
- mechanical Workbench with standard tools
- precision drilling machine
- spot welding apparatus
Special equipment such as lathe, bandsaw, cold circular saw is available on request
The Chemistry Laboratory is located in the main building on ground floor level (see sketch). It comprises
- fume hoods
- storage containers for hazardous chemicals
- explosion-proof refrigerator
- selection of glassware
Further equipment is available on request.
If you want to use the chemistry lab during your next beamtime at BESSY II we would like to ask you to contact Beatrix-Kamelia Seidlhofer or Anna-Marie Runge in timely manner before your arrival. Both will be glad to support you with your experiments. Please have a look at the lab rules before you start working!
Please fill in this registration form at least 7 days prior to your work in the chemistry lab, where you can give us more details on your experiment, your arrival dates etc.
With this information, we are able to arrange an individual lab safety instruction for you and prepare safety precautions in time. After one year, you need to refresh the instruction. During this year, you can access the lab, Anna-Marie Runge or Beatrix-Kamelia Seidlhofer will hand a magnet card to you during normal office hours and the “Hallendienst” during the rest of time.
Information on chemistry lab from User Coffee/What can we do for you session on Friday, 3rd March 2017: What else can we do for you?
The BioLab is operated by the Macromolecular Crystallography group of the institute Soft Matter and Functional Materials. The Biology Laboratory is directly accessible from the experimental hall via the cargo port (see sketch). The laboratory allows open handling of biological material (up to safety level 2) including cultivation of euraryotic cells and genetically modified organisms (safety level S1 only).
Special Applications (on request)
Cleaning facilites for optical components and additional technical gases.
