Shared Research Facilities and Equipment

Many facilities across North Carolina support life science research.

The listing covers core laboratory facilities at university and nonprofit research institutions that are open to researchers or collaborators outside of their home institutions.

Representatives of the core facilities listed below have voluntarily submitted their information. Not all institutions list available core lab facilities, but many are in the process of organizing and compiling these resources. As this information becomes available, we'll add those links.

NCBiotech has funded equipment in many core facilities in the state.

The Center's ongoing role is to provide this information portal.
