Alternative Biomodels, Medical University of Graz


EU regulations, the Austrian legislator and innovative research approaches require new dimensions for the implementation of the three Rs (3Rs). The 3Rs “Replacement”, “Reduction” and “Refinement” are guiding principles for more ethical use of animals in testing. A first initiative in this direction was the establishment of the Core Facility Alternative Biomodels and Preclinical Imaging belonging to the Division of Biomedical Research. The focus of this Core Facility is to set up alternative methods and give support by new alternative methods for all research developing at the Medical University of Graz.

Our services are:

  • CellBank
  • Primary Cell Culture
  • 3D Cell Culture
  • The XCelligence System
  • Mycoplasma detection
  • STR analysis
