Further up

Climate change and rising temperatures are increasingly pushing animals, plants, and microorganisms to higher altitudes. But how do living beings adapt to new conditions? A study taking place in the terraXcube observes how reduced atmospheric pressure affects photosynthesis and transpiration in plants. And whether soil microorganisms can support this adaptation.…

Functional testing of immunodiagnostic systems at high altitude

A series of tests were carried out in the terraXcube Large Cube together with DiaSorin, a Vercelli company from Saluggia, a world leader in the laboratory diagnostics market. The company tested the operation of two immunodiagnostic systems: the LIAISON XL platform and the LIAISON XS platform. Immunodiagnostic systems are instruments for…

Helicopter rescue: shorter resuscitation shifts needed at high altitudes

During missions at high altitudes over 3000 meters the quality of cardiac massage deteriorates after 60-90 seconds. This was demonstrated by the Eurac Research emergency medicine team in an experiment involving about fifty helicopter rescue staff. The experiment was run in the extreme climate simulation centre terraXcube, in collaboration with…
