Our facilities

Fanshawe College, along with funding from the federal and provincial governments, recently renovated and expanded the science laboratory suite as part of a $10.2 million project to create a Centre for Applied Research in Biotechnology (CARIB).

CARIB contains just over 13,000 square feet of new biology, chemistry, instrumentation and physics teaching laboratories, along with biosafety level 2 tissue culture facilities and laboratories. Chemistry instrumentation will include liquid chromatography, gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy, atomic absorption and FT-IR.
