Information on coronavirus SARS-CoV-2

In accordance with the institute's own pandemic plan, we have convened a committee of experts, which coordinates daily on the current situation and takes appropriate measures. By doing so, we take into account the advice and risk assessments of government agencies, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

As a research and infrastructure facility of the Leibniz Association, we would like to provide our cooperation partners and customers with the following information:

• Collection and research activities
  Our collection and research departments have taken organisational measures to ensure
  that laboratory and scientific work can be carried out even if the danger continues.

• Information on the supply chain for biological material 
  As of today, our ability to deliver is assured. Please note that we have no influence on
 the decisions of our transport service provider FedEx.

• Services (e.g. analysis and diagnostics)
  Our service tasks are carried out in our own laboratories and without restrictions.

• Visits of customers and suppliers at our institute
  These can only take place to a limited extent and also only after a previous positive risk
  assessment. Please contact Helga Pomrenke (e-mail) in case of a requested visit.
