Technology Platforms

The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) offers a range of core facilities to serve internal and external users.

The mission of the technology platforms is to accelerate research by providing:

  • access to state-of-the-art technologies and instrumentation
  • top-level scientific expertise and the training necessary to promote cutting-edge research

The platforms are dedicated to helping investigators achieve their research objectives.

The technology platforms operate on a fee-for-service basis. Technology Platforms Usage Pricing

How to use the technology platforms?

The technology platforms supported by the RI-MUHC use web-based iLab Solutions Core Facility Management software. Users must sign up for an iLab account in order to request platform services, schedule equipment use or training.
