Prices and Core Toolset



The DCN is listed in the RIsources portal (RI = Research Infrastructure) operated by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) because it

  • offers recognised, established scientific and technological facilities and services
  • permit free access / regulate access through a transparent selection process based on scientific quality and project feasibility
  • is managed according to sustainable principles and has a long-term perspective

So the DFG equipment center "DCN" allows external partners even better access to excellent technological infrastructure and the special features of the Dresden Center for Nanoanalysis (DCN). Companies and scientific institutions are managed from a single source.

To reserve laboratories and equipment, they receive information on technical equipment and expertise of the technological center and eventually a binding cost estimate, which consideres  funding and subsidy possibilities.
