Many had expected the lab to share the Nobel Prize, however it was only mentioned in a brief note accompanying the decision.
"This has never been done before. It's a fine recognition but I don't think it's enough," said Barany.
"It's too watered down, too little to be only mentioned in the text like that. I think it's very clumsy with that kind of text."
Although the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to organisations in the past, that has never occured with the science prizes.
