Scientific collections

The IZW maintains five scientific collections of international importance that represent an indispensable resource for comparative studies and support the diverse services offered by the institute as a reference centre for wildlife biology and veterinary medicine. The collections are constantly extended and developed and are open for use by cooperation partners and members of the scientific community.

The collections include a pathological-anatomical reference collection of zoo and wildlife animals, a morphological collection, archives of ultrasound and computertomographic images and videos as well as the DNA tissue bank “ARCHE”.
