FELIX laboratory


One of the most remarkable aspects of the Faculty of Science is the strong focus on the development of research methods and equipment. Facilities that are indispensable for achieving scientific breakthroughs. With our strong position in the development of special devices and the technical experience in their construction, our campus has a pioneering role in a broad spectrum of research areas.

Research facilities

This lab, which is situated at Radboudumc, offers advice and support from planning up to and including the conduct of animal research on behalf of biomedical research and education.

The brain-computer interface lab offers extensive facilities for online detection of brain states in real time, mainly from EEG.

In this modern greenhouse complex, with growing rooms, climate rooms, mesh chambers, a root lab (phytotron) and an experimental field of 7000 m2, research is being conducted into (among other things) the effect of climate change on plants, pollination by insects and GMOs.

Measuring equipment and analysis in the field of elemental and amino acid analysis, electron microscopy (EM), light microscopy (LM) and image analysis.

The combination of the highest possible static magnetic fields and intense pulsed infrared free electron lasers is unique in the world. This allows scientists to investigate materials with an unprecedented resolution and precision. 

State-of-the-art laser-based spectroscopy and mass spectrometry for reliable detection and quantification of volatile compounds in complex gas mixtures.

This solid-state NMR facility for advanced materials research contains eight NMR spectrometers for both liquid and solid state NMR research up to 850 MHz.

A variation of Scanning Tunnelling Microscopes (STM) and Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) to research materials for structural, magnetic and electric properties at atomic level.

Part of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, research in this lab is focussed on human sensorimotor processing, using modelling, psychophysical and neuroimaging techniques.

Technical support for scientific research, such as the repair, design, development and realisation of equipment in both mechanical and electronic fields.

In this lab, research using Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is being done to study fundamental physiology, human genetics and disease.
