CNSI Facilities & Labs

The Biological Nanostructures Laboratory (BNL) is a CNSI core facility providing instrumentation and capabilities at the interface of life science and engineering. It is located on the third floor of Elings Hall and is open to all researchers on-campus as well as off-campus.

Tool sets and processes complement research in the chemical and biological nanostructures labs enabling unique capabilities in the pursuit of controlling and manipulating materials at the nanoscale.

A campus-wide resource for fabricating microfluidic devices.

Visualizing, hearing and exploring complex multi-dimensional data provides insight that is essential for progress in a number of critical areas of science and engineering.

Provides leading edge techniques and methods, catering to the needs of the research community.

The Spectroscopy facility of MRL is the home to the state-of-the-art magnetic resonance instruments in solution NMR, solid-state NMR, MRI, Rheo-NMR, PFG-Diffusion, DNP-NMR, and EPR. 

Provides state-of-the-art x-ray diffraction tools for characterizing structural properties of a wide range of materials including metals and composites, polymers and biological materials, and electronic and optoelectronic materials

Researchers have access to high performance computing resources through the Center for Scientific Computing.
