Short introduction to our DIY Bio-Lab

Welcome to our DIY Bio-Lab at Bauhaus University Weimar

Before you start using our microscopes, the laminar hood or chemicals, please take a couple of hours to prepare beforehand:

  • read the manuals for the microscopes and understand how to use them
  • watch two videos and learn how to use microliter pipettes
  • get some basic vocabulary about lab- equipment
  • read some recipes for the medium your organism needs
  • and read the basic papers about your organism, before you start growing it.


microliter pipettes



What kind of medium you want to prepare and what your organism needs you have to find out yourself.

See available /chemicals in the lab.

Current Organisms

If you want to work with one of these organisms, please present a short concept to GMUGestaltung medialer Umgebungen Staff during opening hours. If you want to work with another organism please contact us.

Animal Store in Weimar

This store has living Artemia, Daphnia, Nematocera (Chironomus & Chaoborus) and Enchytraeen ( Enchytraeus albidus). They sell them in small bags and it costs less than a coffee. Each Tuesday they will have a new delivery of these fresh organisms. It is possible for them to get other 'fish food' as well.
