The cold laboratory has been operational since October 2008 and inside the cold laboratory it is possible to do experiments in a controlled environment. These experiments include e.g. ice growing tests and how the light penetrates the snowpack. Also the cold laboratory is used to process ice core samples from Antarctica. The cold laboratory is movable and the minimum temperature that can be reached is -25 °C.
