The Technical University of Munich (TUM), is a research university with campuses in Munich, Garching and Freising- Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM is one of the most research-focused universities in Europe and has been ranked 11th in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2014. The TUM features a strong, characteristic profile in the fields of Science and Engineering. Alongside the traditional key areas addressed by technical universities, powerful links have been also established with the life sciences, ranging from nutrition and food sciences, biotechnology and bioinformatics through to medicine. Much of its innovative research and teaching has emerged from collaborations between the disciplines.
In the published video interview Dr. Olaf Groß, head of the research group at the TUM Institute of Clinical Chemistry, explains “The VACUSAFE aspiration system has proven a very reliable system for safe aspiration of cell cultures. We particularly like that the system operates with minimal noise and that the versatile VACUBOY adapter enables us to remove liquids from almost any vessel whilst maintaining sterility”.
