In addition to each faculty member’s individual research space and instrumentation, KGI’s Institutional Laboratory Support (ILS) provides core laboratory space, instrumentation, and services essential to nurturing interdisciplinary, applied research. Instrumentation within the ILS is accessible to all researchers working at KGI. Instrument maintenance and training is provided through laboratory core personnel. Laboratory oversight, equipment maintenance, and user training is provided through the director of the ILS.
The ILS laboratory facilities encompass a 1,866 sq. ft. core laboratory organized into thematic areas, a 316 sq. ft. design and fabrication facility, a 384 sq. ft. Laboratory Automation Center, plus sections of other laboratories at KGI, a small BSL2 lab, a cell culture lab with a laminar flow hood, a class 10,000 soft-walled clean room (Clean Air Products), two utility rooms with autoclaves, dishwashers, drying ovens, freezers and refrigerators, and a dark room with revolving door.
