We are

Core Labs and Research Infrastructure is a system of centrally governed, multidisciplinary laboratories. Each lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and is supported by expertly skilled staff, many with postgraduate qualifications and all proficient in their specific fields. 

Our system of centralized governance, the One Lab Model, is structured to allow research to progress seamlessly across disciplines. Pivotal to this level of access is our support system. Our staff members are always on hand to inform and advise. We offer a variety of services tailored to meet every eventuality.
