Conveniently located next to the Kosterhavet Marine National Park, the Tjärnö Marine Laboratory is one of Europe’s largest and most modern research stations. The location offers excellent access to a range of marine environments from shallow-water to deep-sea habitats. Experimental facilities include outdoor tanks and thermo-constant rooms with running seawater, state-of-the-art equipment for ocean acidification experiments, flumes for hydrodynamics as well as culture facilities for macro- and microalgae and invertebrates. Equipment for field work from snorkelling and diving gear to ROVs is available for use. Our chemical laboratories are equipped with HPLC, preparative HPLC, LC-QTOF-MS, LC-QQQ-MS, and GC-MS. Our modern and functional DNA and RNA labs allow for genomic analyses.

Situated in the heart of Gothenburg, our facilities include an in-house culture collection of marine microalgae including mutant knock-outs of the model organism Skeletonema marinoi. The chemical lab includes a LC-QQQ-MS, a GC-MS, a particle counter, and a flow-cytometer. Gothenburg also offers a cutting-edge filming set-up that can be used for motion analysis of micro- and mesoplankton.
