Research Facilities

A close-up of pharmacy bottles in a testing machine.

D’Youville’s state-of-the-art facilities offer equipment, research labs, space for study, and a collaborative, supportive culture.

The Pharmacy Research Labs at D'Yourville are modeled after a typical biopharma start-up environment and allow professional and student researchers to conduct cutting edge studies and drug candidate evaluations.

Students will find quick and helpful assistance through the lab manager and a dedicated group of peers and faculty to consult.

Featured Pharmacy Research Equipment

Inside of D'Youville's new, modern pharmacy research labs, researchers have access to the equipment necessary to perform trials and testing in a controlled, clinical environment.


Agilent 1100 HPLC/Mass Spectrometer

The Agilent 1100 HPLC/Mass Spectrometer is used to separate and identify, by diode-array UV-Visible detection, components of pharmaceutical products for analytical purposes, and to further identify critical components by molecular weight and structural information. These orthogonal sets of data provide confident compound identification from a single chromatographic.

Location: DAC 509
