Different microorganisms are inoculated and cultivated in this room. Bacteria, fungi and yeasts are grown on Petri dishes, in Roux bottles, Erlenmeyer flasks, or baffled flasks up to 1 L. The laboratory is equipped to prepare culture media, autoclave them and finally grow the inoculated
flasks in horizontal shaking incubators. Promising enzyme variant are found by screening with a pipetting robot and a plate reader. Successful clones are produced on a larger scale in the fermentation lab.
