Glendale Core Research Facility

State-of-the-art instrumentation for research at the Glendale, AZ campus.

Overview Deshadowed

The P站视频 Core Facility at the Glendale, AZ campus maintains advanced instruments in several areas of strength including cell culture, histology, microscopy, image processing, and cell and analytical biology. There are no fees to use these instruments, and most are available on a direct walk-up basis. Reservations to use instruments are handled using the University's online scheduling system. Our facility is overseen by a Faculty Advisor and managed by a full-time staff, with training and troubleshooting also provided by the staff. The Core Facility continuously assesses the changing needs of our research community and receives funding from P站视频 to add new equipment and resources.
