Chemistry facilities and equipment

Suter Science Center East Wing renovations were completed in 2015, providing biology and chemistry departments with brand new facilities, hardware and safety equipment. We are fortunate to have a variety of instruments and equipment that enhance the laboratory experience. Listed below are some of our most commonly used teaching and research materials.

Take a virtual tour of the science center.
