BioVitrum, together with their partner Nikon Europe, have supported Russian education and Science by helping to develop the first educational laboratories using Nikon light microscopes.
The research and education center "morphology and physiology of man" at the Krasnoyarsk Medical University and the White Sea Biological Station of Moscow State University became the first academic and research institutions where BioVitrum and Nikon offer light microscopy. It is the first project in their plan to support the development of Russian science and education. The grand opening of the laboratory was attended by Vladimir Tsimberg, Director of BioVitrum, and Sumio Eimori, President of Nikon Europe.
This modern, hi-tech equipment which was installed in the laboratories have been practically non-existent in Russia. Nikon microscopes allow students, graduate students and researchers of both institutions to measure data with the highest accuracy, and monitor the process in detail with precision micro-photography.
These projects were the first of their kind for BioVitrum, but not the last. In 2014, a program to support modern microscopy equipment for biology departments in schools and a grant program for young scientists will be developed. We sincerely believe that if our companies contribute to the development of education and science in Russia we will achieve spectacular results!
