What is the Toolbox?
Toolbox is a non-profit central unit of the BIOSS excellence cluster in Freiburg, which serves as a method development facility for signalling studies and synthetic biology and a resource, storage and information centre for biological materials.
We offer our extended expertise and broad spectrum of devices to develop methods in collaborations with researchers from both academic and private sectors. With the present expertise, top level instrumentation and biological materials collections, we are able to help you realize your project from the experimental design down to data analysis.
Additionally we are storing, verifying and distributing biological material within the university with the aim to expand the research capacity of scientists and increase their working efficiency. The highly motivated Toolbox team works with academic researchers but also with private and commercial organizations.

Since its establishment in 2008 Toolbox successfully became a service facility providing the scientists within the University of Freiburg with high quality support for their daily work. Up to now we have been accumulating expertise from numerous collaborations with research groups and now are expanding our supporting activities towards methods development.
We recently moved to the newly constructed BIOSS Signalhaus in Freiburg where we work on brand new equipment and top level imaging facilities . For more detailed information click on the specific links or contact us via email.
