Department : Rutgers Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology (IAMDN) - Microelectronics Research Laboratory (MERL)

The Microelectronics Research Laboratory (MERL) works closely with researchers in academia, government and industry to help solve problems in multidisciplinary science and engineering and high-tech industry, to carry out advanced research in micro- and nano-optoelectronics, solid state devices and electronic materials.

Department : Cell and Cell Product Fermentation Facility

The fermentation facility's goal has been to provide affordable fermentation services to a highly diverse client base. Completely renovated in 2011 the fermentation facility, which meets BL2-LS containment requirements, is comprised of four contiguous operation units:
•Material Preparation Laboratory
•Fermentation In-Process
•Computer Control
•Product Recovery Room

Bio-reactor working capacities range from 10 to 800 liters. All systems are computer controlled with algorithm-based cascade-capable PID programming.
