The premises and equipment of the Department of Biology are modern and have almost everything a biologist needs, from molecular laboratories, electron and confocal microscopes to field stations and wind tunnels. A great deal of this is also available for external users.


In the 3D Lab we deal with different technologies for quantifying, analysing and visualizing 3D complex phenotypes of both extant and extinct (fossils) organisms. Our focus are applications in the field of ecology, evolution and palaeontology. However, our technology can be used in a broader range of applications such as: medicine, anthropology, archaeology, geology, cultural heritage, engineering and design.

DNA Sequencing Facility

We offer services for DNA and cDNA (RNA-Seq) sequencing. Our unit has instruments and resources for traditional Sanger Sequencing (ABI 3500) but also for the so-called Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) based on the Illumina MiSeq platform. We also offer expertise, consultation and discussion around the design of experiments, the construction of sequencing libraries as well as support in data processing and bioinformatic strategies.

Electronics Lab

Our Electronics Lab helps you with the technical support systems. We adapt existing technology or develop new soulutions if needed.

Field stations

The Department of Biology has two fieldstations, Aneboda outside Växjö and Stensoffa at Reveingehed in Skåne.

More about our fieldstations

Greenhouses and cultivation spaces

We have cultivation facilities both outside and inside our well-equipped greenhouses. Find out more about our equipment and facilities.

Instrumental Chemistry

Our laboratorium for chemical analysis is partly a service lab. Today we do commissions for the research groups at our department but also for other departments, universities, authorities and companies. The laboratorium has two sections – an inorganic analysis lab and a lab for analysis of stable isotopes.

Lund Protein-Production Platform (LP3)

Lund Protein Production Platform, LP3, is a cross-faculty facility for protein production and isolation. LP3 aims to provide a high quality recombinant protein production service, as close to cost price as possible. The Crystallization facility is a part of LP3 and helps users to carry out robot-assisted crystallization experiments and to produce crystals suitable for data collection.

Lund Wind Tunnel

The Lund Wind Tunnel is a low-speed low-turbulence wind tunnel specifically designed for studying bird flight, although we also study bat flight and insect flight. Some of the special features of the wind tunnel are that there is an opening between the test section and the bellmouth, so we can have quick and easy access to the flying animal.

More about the Lund Wind Tunnel


The Department of Biology has three electron microscopes and one confocal microscopy at our microscope facility. The primary use of confocal microscopy is optical sectioning of different types of specimens, with the capacity of simultaneous detection of multiple fluorescent markers. You can also use confocal microscopy to visualize surfaces. With electron microscopy you look either at sections or surfaces in high-resolution.
