Operations Have Resumed in RTSF Cores

The MSU Research Technology Support Facility cores have commenced a Phase 1 return to operations in compliance with Michigan State University and VPRI safety guidelines. Please click "Read More" for details.


Big Science Requires Big Tools

The Research Technology Support Facility (RTSF) at Michigan State University is a collection of five analytical facilities which provide the fundamental tools for modern life science research.

The complexities and costs of the tools involved in 21st century science require a full-time staff focused on the understanding and maintaining the instruments. These research tools are part of a hub of facilities connecting research in diverse areas of science.

Making MSU Research More Efficient

Consolidating these tools into the RTSF allows for specially trained staff to provide researchers with sophisticated analyses.

The expertise and protocols needed for next-generation bio-analysis are complex and changing almost daily. MSU researchers will enjoy the efficiency of having RTSF focus on understanding the equipment. As a central resource, we keep current with the latest developments and provide the edge needed for MSU researchers.
