The UT Core Facilities are shared resources, available to all UT researchers and industry partners, often on a fee for service basis. These facilities offer access to high-end instrumentation, technical support, and expert consultation to the University of Tennessee research community and, in many cases, to external customers as well.
The Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development has contracted with Stratocore, a billing and scheduling system for use by UT Core Facilities. Stratocore will make interacting with the cores a seamless process and help these facilities streamline their accounting process. Click here for more information about creating a Stratocore account.
