Biology Lab

The biology teaching laboratory serves the natural science-related majors (biology, neuroscience, medicine, etc.) of the College of Arts and Sciences. It offers major required and elective courses, and core undergraduate curriculum biology courses.Located on the fifth floor in the South Hall, it includes two Foundation of Biology laboratories, a microbe culture room, a cell culture room, a precision instrument laboratory, a protein assay lab, and a cryogenic instrument room. Students have access to a fluorescent microscope, a flow cytometer and other large-scale precision instruments and equipment, as well as conventional teaching equipment such as microscopes, incubators, centrifuges, PCR machines, ultraviolet imagers, gel electrophoresis instruments, protein transfer instrument, spectrophotometers, clean benches and biological safety cabinets (sets, pieces).

Cell Lab

The Cell Culture Room is located on the fifth floor of the South Hall and is equipped with large precision instruments such as fluorescence microscopes, inverted microscopes, flow cytometer, biosafety cabinets, high-speed centrifuges, and freezing centrifuges, as well as multiple instruments such as CO2 incubators, centrifuges, and RT-PCR machines. It is used for teaching Cell Biology courses for biology and neuroscience majors. The laboratory is mainly used for the teaching of theoretical courses. Through experiments, students master the principles of cell biology and learn operation methods and specifications of optical microscope technology, cell morphology observation technology, cell culture technology, and cell life phenomenon research technology.

Physics Lab

The NYUSH Physics Teaching Laboratories cover a total area of 320 square meters, including the General Physics Laboratory, Advanced Physics Laboratory, and Storage Room. The laboratories can accommodate 48 students for courses such as “FoS Physics I & II,” Advanced Physics,” and “How Things Work” (open to students from all majors). The courses cover classical mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetics, optics, and quantum mechanics, combining theory and practice to provide a solid foundation for students to explore the field of physical science.

Electrical and Computer Engineering Lab

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Laboratory is situated in South Hall. Students have the opportunity to take a diverse range of courses in the lab, including circuits, embedded computer systems, digital logic, and senior projects. It also serves as a learning platform for research projects. The laboratory is equipped with various conventional devices such as oscilloscopes, waveform generators, DC power supplies, multimeters FPGA programmable circuit boards, computers, and relevant software to support students in their learning and research endeavors. Other facilities such as circuit board engraving machines, reflow soldering equipment, perforation copper plating devices, and 3D printers are available for students to develop basic skills in circuit board creation and experimental components.  

NYU Shanghai professors are committed to combining expertise in electrical engineering with programming skills, guiding students to integrate theory with practice, enhancing their professional design and hands-on abilities, and fostering future engineers with comprehensive skills.

General Chemistry Lab

The General Chemistry Lab is equipped with world-class instruments and safety facilities, providing an excellent environment for the teaching of general chemistry experiments. Students can learn lab works for foundation of chemistry through chromatography, spectroscopy, titration, qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis, kinetics and thermodynamics and other classical chemical experiments, and expand their scientific mindset by carrying out independent research projects. The laboratory implements strict management regulations and safety measures to ensure the safety of students during the experiment. Students have access to variety of instruments, including UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Fluorescence Spectrophotometer, Raman Spectrometer, Atomic Force Microscope, and other advanced instruments for scientific research experiments.

Chemistry Instrument Room

The instrument room is 104 square meters and houses many instruments, including microscopes, UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Fluorospectrophotometer, HPLC, and AFM. It provides professional analysis for the lab courses (General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Bio-Chemistry etc.), and meets teaching and scientific needs.
