Tissue Collection

The Laboratory of Molecular Systematics harbours a tissue collection which currently comprises more than 30.000 (EDP registered) tissue samples.

Most of the samples (blood, and various tissues) are deep-frozen (-80°C), a minor part of the collection is fixed in 70% ethanol and stored at 4°C. The samples have been collected mainly for current or planned projects. Most of them are tissues of reptiles and amphibians.

On request, samples are available for other institutions.
