Experience and Expertise

The design of instruments for scientific applications requires expertise in a variety of fields. Successful implementation and fabrication of the required technology depends not only on electronics, but also on optics, mechanics, and other special areas of physics and engineering.

We have many years of experience in the development and construction of scientific instruments needed by the neuroscience community here in Cologne, as well as other collaborating institutions throughout the world. Thus, we are able to implement a large variety of designs and skills to find optimal solutions for each researcher.

Additionally, we have a well-equipped in-house mechanics workshop that provides 3D CAD and machining of various materials.

The electronics lab has been headed by engineer Michael Dübbert since 2002.
