Welcome to the University of Oxford's research facilities and equipment on-line searchable database which was developed with funding from EPSRC. The purpose of this database is to provide information on research equipment over £25k and on the University’s Small Research Facilities (SRFs) and to promote and encourage the sharing of equipment across the University.

In addition you can access data on selected equipment and facilities for the University of Cambridge, the University of Southampton, Imperial College London, and University College London.

You can search for a piece of equipment using only the free text search field below, do an advanced search where you can refine by general location for Oxford, and by Institution and/or browse by category or facility.

If you would like to add or amend an entry, please see the Contribute page. For all other queries please see the Contact page.

The Departments page provides information on the departments involved in the database and the update status of their equipment entries.

The equipment data are used to assist the academic analysis of current and future needs, including work commissioned by Professor Peter Ratcliffe and Oxford’s Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Institutional Support Fund (WT ISSSF) Committee in relation to (i) imaging and (ii) mass spectrometry. Further information and links to the audits can be found on the ISSF website.
