Preparations and objects from our scientific collection are available on loan to scientific institutions to be used for research purposes. Here you will find information for researchers how to proceed.

Regulations for loan

The loan period is normally 6 or 12 months and the decision to allow a loan will be judged in each individual case. Type material and sensitive material will only exceptionally be lent out. Pictures are often available as an option.
