Abstract: We report on the equipment, methods and results of microbiological sampling from deep levels of ice in Central Antarctica. The equipment includes a special microbiological drill laboratory (MBU) thermodrill (TELGA 14M), unit for sterile sampring from the ice core (USL) and borehole sampling unit (PSM-152). We report the methods of sterile sampling of ice core with USL-unit and results of investigations of ice core from deep levels of ice on Vostok Station, accomplished in Institute of Microbiology Russian Academy of Science (RAN) and new borehole sterile sampling with PSM-152-unit carried out in 1991 on the Vostok Station.
