The Molecular Education, Technology and Research Innovation Center (METRIC)

METRIC serves to provide NC State University researchers with access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and some of the brightest minds in the fields of mass spectrometry, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and X-ray crystallography.

Our instructors and trained students have walk-in access to MALDI TOF, GC-MS and low-field NMR instrumentation.
