North Carolina Core Lab to House Unparalleled Resources

 

NEW YORK, Feb. 23 (GenomeWeb News) – Construction on the new North Carolina Research Campus began today with a ground-breaking ceremony for the facility’s centerpiece Core Lab, according to a statement.

 

The $80 million, 80,000 square-foot lab will contain the state’s only 900 MHz NMR Spectrometer, together with two smaller NMRs. It will house a genomics facility, an imaging facility, and a GMP manufacturing facility. 

 

The 350-acre NC Research Campus will house up to 100 private companies and research institutes from state universities.
