UTS Science has invested extensively in its research facilities with advanced specialised scientific instruments and equipment to benefit its students and researchers. They are:
The Australian Facility for Taphonomic Experimental Research (AFTER) brings together academic, police and forensic agencies who conduct research and training to assist death investigations.
The Proteomics Core Facility brings together leading technologies for sample preparation and protein extraction, protein separations, identification and characterisation.
The Chemical Technologies Research Facility pulls together the resources of several well equipped laboratories specialising in chemistry and materials science. The laboratories provide research and training services to further the sustainable development of chemical technologies.
The Chinese Medicine Clinic provides three outpatient clinics where members of the public can receive Chinese medicine treatment from qualified staff practitioners or student interns at a substantially reduced cost, as part of its degree program.
The Elemental Bio-Imaging Facility combines research expertise in analytical chemistry, physics and clinical and biological sciences to establish state of the art bio-imaging solutions for solving complex analytical and biological research questions.
The Environmental Research Facility supports a diverse range of research activities from aquatic and terrestrial environments, in both laboratory and field settings for the Climate Change Cluster and the Centre for Environmental Sustainability.
The Insect Research Facility's research and development focus is the control of urban pests.
It has modern laboratory facilities which include insect breeding rooms and insecticide application and evaluation laboratories.
The Microbial Imaging Facility provides high-resolution imaging of microorganisms and biological processes within larger eukaryotic cells, and equipment for flow cytometry and biological specimen preparation for optical and electron microscopy.
The Microstructural Analysis Unit provides researchers in both the physical and biological sciences with access to a comprehensive array of state-of-the-art analytical microscopy tools as well as materials analysis and fabrication equipment.
The Surgical and Anatomical Science Facility is one of Australia’s foremost dedicated human anatomical laboratories. It has world-class specimen viewing and preparation areas, fitted with cutting edge equipment and technologies.
