Abstract. The ISOPHOT Serendipity Survey fills the otherwise unused slew time between ISO's fine pointings with measurements in an unexplored wavelength regime near 200 img1.gifm. First results of the Serendipity Survey demonstrate its capabilities in the detection of extragalactic point sources as well as in investigations of the galactic infrared cirrus. With the detection limit for point sources of img2.gif Jy more than 3000 galaxies will be observed.

Key words: surveys - infrared: galaxies - infrared: ISM: continuum

* ISO is an ESA project with instruments funded by ESA Member States (especially the PI countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) and with the participation of ISAS and NASA.
