Welcome to the Yale CBIC

The Yale Chemical and Biophysical Instrumentation Center (CBIC) is an extensive collection of analytical instruments for scientific research supervised by a professional staff. We are located in Sterling Chemistry Laboratory, Chemical Research Building, and Bass Laboratories.

The instruments in the CBIC are available for use by all researchers in the Yale community as well as by academic or industrial researchers outside of Yale. A student or post-doc at Yale who wishes to operate instruments in the Center should first obtain approval from his or her research supervisor and then request access online via this website. CBIC use by academic or industrial researchers outside of Yale is dependent upon approval by the CBIC director. Please contact us for more information and request access to the instruments.

Obtain access to the instruments by completing the appropriate account request or making your online reservations
