IOC Schroecken

Schroecken Wiki.JPG
The four-day Oroboros O2k-Workshops in Schroecken have become world-famous. They are usually held twice a year in the idyllic Alpine village Schroecken (Vorarlberg, Austria).
Oroboros O2k-Workshops in Schroecken provide a practical overview of the O2k-FluoRespirometer (and O2k-Fluo LED2-Module), with data analysis by DatLab and applications of the TIP2k. Hands-on experiments illustrate the principle and show the unique advantages and limitations of simultaneous monitoring of oxygen concentration, respiration, hydrogen peroxide production.
Oroboros O2k-Workshops in Schroecken are held at Hotel Koerbersee (accommodation, meals, lectures and hands-on sessions). During lunch breaks, sufficient time is available for skiing, relaxing walks and talks, to enjoy the refreshing scenery of the alpine environment.
