The National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) is the primary research center of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The one-million square foot research campus in Jefferson, Arkansas plays a critical role in the missions of FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services to promote and protect public health.
- Sony SA3800 Flow Cytometer with cell sorter – counting, collecting and analyses of different cell populations
- BioStat Qplus Semicontinuous Anaerobic Culture System – microbiome and long-term microbial growth studies
- Anaerobe chambers – multiple chambers to conduct microbiome research
- Fast Purification Liquid Chromatography System – analyses of metabolites
- Illumina Miseq System – DNA sequencing
All potential use of NCTR equipment must be aligned with NCTR’s mission and may require a technology transfer agreement:
NCTR conducts scientific research to generate data for FDA decision making, and develops and supports innovative tools and approaches that FDA uses to protect and promote individual and public health.
