The electronics and optics laboratories at the Marine and Coastal Research Laboratory (MCRL) at PNNL-Sequim are designed for sensor system development, platform development, and field operations command and control. Available instrumentation includes:
- Power Supplies
- Signal Generators
- Function Generators
- Frequency Counters
- Soldering/Desoldering stations
- Small hand tools
These laboratories contain MCRL engineering capabilities such as Solidworks 3D mechanical CAD and multi-layer electronic circuit board design.
Local machine shops provide contract services, precision machining, and fabrication capabilities. There is conditioned guest space in the server room with high speed internet connections. There is also room for guest servers and a desk for visiting PIs.
The optics/microscopy laboratory has several plain light and epifluorescent microscopes, dissecting microscopes, a FlowCam imaging flow cytometer, and a Bio-Tek Synergy 4 multi-detection plate reader with BioStack microplate stacker for high-throughput processing.
