Supported by a common funded project with RD51-CERN, a groundbreaking laboratory for training, development, fabrication, applications and innovation with Silicon Photo-Multipliers (SiPMs) and Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGDs) and their related technology has been finally commissioned at Universidad Antonio Nariño (UAN) in Colombia. Such devices are featured by their remarkable space and time resolution, high gain, robustness and large stability for a wide range of radiation and particles. The UAN expertise on such kind of devices mainly arises from collaboration with the ATLAS, RD51, NEXT, DUNE experiments worldwide and optical communications industry in Colombia (datLIGHT-VLC). The UAN has developed a dedicated characterization setup and protocol (outside the scope of this work) what ensure a reliable electrical response of SiPMs and MPGDs under predefined conditions by the user at high rate data production. A brief overview of such characterization setup is presented in this work.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
