Facilities

Top research facilities give faculty and students access to advanced technology that helps spawn discovery. The College of Sciences and its affiliated units on campus have access to variety of state-of-the-art research facilities.

Biological Resources Facility
The Biological Resources Facility and Toxicology Animal Facility provides centralized sites for the humane care of research animals while accommodating the research and teaching needs of faculty members at NC State, as well as researchers from private industry and governmental agencies, under conditions required by local and federal regulatory bodies.

Genomic Sciences Laboratory
The Genomics Sciences Laboratory provides sequencing and support services to the NC State and broader scientific communities on everything from project planning to DNA or RNA extraction to sequencing.

Instrument Shop
The College of Sciences Instrument Shop is a full-service machine shop specializing in the custom fabrication, construction, and design of prototype research equipment. The shop work closely with the faculty and students in the construction, fabrication, repair or modification of scientific instruments and equipment.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility
The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility in the Department of Chemistry is equipped with six nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers for chemical analysis. The facility supports research the department and the wider university system, and is available to support the needs of other academic institutions, research laboratories, businesses and individuals.

Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory
The Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL) is a U.S. Department of Energy Center of Excellence that focuses on low-energy nuclear physics research. TUNL is a consortium of the three major Triangle research universities: NC State, Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

X-Ray Structural Facility
The X-Ray Structural Facility serves the structural needs of the Department of Chemistry, the university community and organizations in the Research Triangle area. The facility uses single-crystal X-ray diffraction to determine the makeup of substances.
