At KFC, you can rent different rooms such as labs, cell culture rooms and offices. At the same time, you get access to our common rooms and equipment.
The lab spaces are hired out to individual groups; bigger labs can even be shared with a second group if requested. They are equipped with lab benches and chairs, at least one fridge/freezer, a ventilated hood or bench, a chemical storage cabinet, an acid cabinet under the ventilated hood if requested, a fire-extinguisher and an "elephant foot". All lab spaces have a storage room close by with allocated space.
