Newsletter IBF University of Heidelberg, 2nd quarter 2017


Dear Users of the IBF,

a bit later this month, but nevertheless hot off the press. The news:

Construction work

Due to the construction work in the basement and the temporary steam withdrawal this week, there might be delays in the cage washing facility. We try to keep the delays to a minimum.


Due to an excessive work surplus regarding the billing, from now on there is only going to be a single bill per user. If you need your bill to be split up, this has to be communicated in advance and is subject to an additional fee.

Use of surgical theatres in the large animal area and the KEB

Please leave your workplace in an acceptable, clean state! Especially contaminations due to blood or tissue have to be cleaned!
