A searchable database of core laboratory facilities. Core Facilities

Welcome to the Harvard Catalyst Core Facilities Database

Core scientific facilities support innovative research at Harvard by providing highly specialized services, equipment and staff that would otherwise be too expensive for a single laboratory or department to provide. Harvard Catalyst is committed to increasing awareness of core facilities to help expedite research.

To that end, Harvard Catalyst has created this searchable database of core facilities, now powered by the eagle-i resource discovery platform. The cores are indexed by institution and by service category; the catalog is also searchable by keyword. The database will grow as more cores are established and additional services are identified.

Core facilities are owned, supported and managed by the institutions that comprise Harvard Catalyst. While most cores are publicly available, some are required by their sponsors to limit access and to differentiate pricing. Policies regarding services, access, fees and prioritization vary by core and by institution. Please contact the core facility directly for more information, by using the link on each core facility page of this website.

To begin, click “Categories” or “Institutions” at left, or enter a keyword to search the contents of the database.

Database Maintenance:
The Harvard Catalyst team performs maintenance on the Cores Facilities Database on Thursdays from 5am-8am ET. Core facilities information may be unavailable during this time. We thank you for your patience as we work to improve the database for our research community.

We welcome your feedback.
We are exploring enhancements to Core Facilities to tap even more of eagle-i’s capabilities, and welcome your feedback on how best to satisfy your research resource needs.
