The service portfolios of our Core Units are complemented by offerings of the Charité and MDC, which BIH scientists can use on an equal basis. Discovery and booking of the Core Units services of BIH, Charité and MDC is possible via the portal Open IRIS. Price lists and terms of cooperation are available on the individual websites of the Core Units, or upon request.

All Core Units required to realize a project should be consulted during the planning phase to ensure appropriate experimental design, sufficient capacity, and consideration of costs, for example, when applying for external funding.
