is a medical research centre in Vasa, Finland, dedicated to endoscopic examinations of the digestive canal. The centre was founded in 1983.
The Gastrolab Home Page
was initiated in the spring of 1996, with several important goals:
* maintaining an endoscopic image gallery free to use for all interested health care personals
* maintaining a gastroenterologic calendar and a gastroenterologic link collection including a nearly complete list of medical journals
* maintaining contact information about support groups and associations all over the world
* providing historical texts about gastroenterologic topics
* providing information about gastrointestinal health care topics for the general public in Swedish and Finnish
We started on March 24, 1996 - quite a long time ago in the Internet context. In February 1999 we got our own domain name - www.gastrolab.net - making us easy to find. Since September 2003 there is also a mirror site www.gastrolab.info/index.htm, containing the basic gastrolab material and a growing video library.
Our site celebrated its tenth year on the net in March 2006

over 20 years and has personally performed about 40.000 endoscopic

in Scandinavian countries. His main tasks during recent years have been
developing endoscopic image libraries and writing informative texts
concerning gastrointestinal diseases indended for the general public.

We are going to be on the Net for years to come, and we have some quite interesting plans for the future.
