UC Merced · Stem Cell Instrumentation Foundry (SCIF) at the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM)
As part of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) at UC Merced, the Stem Cell Instrumentation Foundry (SCIF) provides stem cell researchers throughout the State access to advanced instruments, techniques and collaborators for single cell analysis. The overall project was divided into a wet lab facility and a clean room facility. The project included conversion of existing shelled space into new Class 1000 and Class 100 Clean Rooms for micro/nano fabrication, facilities for human and mouse stem cell culture, quantitative cell imaging and workstations. The ancillary core services include materials characterization, vivarium and computational biology. The project also included an additional renovation to accommodate a Service Chase, Gowning Room, H-Occupancy Chemical Storage, an Imaging Workstations Room, several Cell Culture Labs, a Flow Cytometry Lab, a Microscopy Lab, and associated support infrastructure.
The design provides pedestrians with a view of the research facility.
