Facilities & Instruments

The BioSMART Center (http://centers.njit.edu/smart/welcome/) is located in the Life Sciences facility, and the laboratories are well-equipped with state-of-the art instrumentation and microfabrication tools. NJIT’s Life Sciences and Engineering Center is a $19 million state-of-the-art research facility, of which about $13.5 million was funded by the State of New Jersey Higher Education Capital Facilities Grant Programs and the remainder by NJIT.

BioSMART shares other NJIT and Rutgers facilities including:

 

Microfabrication Center

The Microelectronic fabrication Center is a state-of-the-art micro and nanofabrication facility. It serves the NJIT research community and more than 70 companies including Lucent Technologies, Hewlett Packard, Dupont, Allied-Signal, AT&T, BF Goodrich, Corning, Amkor Electronics, Motorola, David Sarnoff, Sony. It has been involved in major NJIT R & D projects as “Child-safe Weapons Technology” and “Programmable MEMS Shunt Wave for Hydrocephalus Treatment” as well as in numerous projects and research grants led by ME, ECE, CES, Physics, and BME departments. MFC together with BME has organized a BioMEMS Summer Bioengineering Institute - a jointly funded program by NSF and NIH.

 

NJIT Makerspace

 NJIT Makerspace is a rapid prototyping and manufacturing facility. The 10,000 square-foot Makerspace houses the industrial-grade tools and technologies, including equipment and devices for 3D printing, additive manufacturing, material cutting and shaping, and metrology (https://www.njitmakerspace.com/). NJIT's Makerspace creates the ecosystem for students to participate in the innovation, invention, and product realization processes that American industry depends on, as well as assign space for public and private partnerships to emerge--offering access to an array of state-of-the-art equipment for design, prototyping, testing, and research.

 

NJIT Nanofabrication Center

Nanoelectronics Fabrication Center: NJIT recently opened its Nanoelectronics Fabrication Center, which allows faculty and students to test, validate and translate innovative medical device and biosensor technologies to improve diagnosis and treatment of critical diseases and advance detection and remediation of pollutants. This facility allows researchers to print their designs on silicon or plates of glass, fabricate, and test them. Because the parts they are making are micro- and nanoscale, the rooms will be free of potentially contaminating particles larger than a micron. The highest-level cleanroom (below) will be limited to 100 1-micron particles in a cubic meter of air.

 

The Otto York Center

The Otto York Center (http://centers.njit.edu/york/analysis/) - The Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science (YCEES) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) offers core laboratory facilities as a resource for the university and for contract research. It has been the home of many interdisciplinary research programs and initiatives. The York Center was the first building in the nation especially constructed for cooperative public and private research in hazardous waste management. Today it has diversified into many other areas with research projects in nanotechnology, drug delivery, particle engineering, microfluidics, membrane science, environmental science and engineering, and biomedical engineering.
