Lab Facility

Our laboratory is housed in an approximately 10,500 square feet building. Custom-designed for seed testing, it has separate areas for purity, germination, special testing and sample storage. A multi-purpose training and overflow testing room is located on a mezzanine. Many windows on the main floor admit lots of natural light. The greenhouse is located just steps away in the OSU greenhouse complex.

The building was designed to facilitate the flow of samples. The reception area is located near the front entrance to facilitate sample drop-off. Samples are routed from reception directly to the sample preparation area. After preparation, they are distributed to the appropriate departments for testing. Sample storage allows a large number of samples to be filed in a relatively small area. The storage area is unheated to reproduce local storage conditions.
