Research activities are not only based on the observatories, there is a network of laboratories, located at the various branches of the Institute, which allow researchers to develop ISP research topics. In the laboratories, samples taken in polar areas are analysed. These samples, given the difficult environmental conditions in which we operate during the field campaigns, as well as the considerable logistical effort involved in their collection, are always precious and often unrepeatable. Therefore, the availability of equipment that allows the researcher to obtain the maximum possible information from each sample becomes fundamental so we can advance knowledge of these extreme environments.

The laboratories also perform services on behalf of third parties and in the context of contracts, agreements and research collaborations with companies, universities and national and international institutions. For more information, contact the representatives of the laboratories / instruments.
