Core Services

Technical and advisory services
NRC’s technical services help small and large enterprises overcome workforce constraints and limited resources, accelerating design cycles and helping to identify product performance limits. We have experienced professionals on-site to help our clients solve immediate technical problems associated with the transfer, adoption and diffusion of technology. Our specialized services range from testing and certifications to calibration, prototyping, demonstrations, scale-up and consulting.

Industry Partnership Facility
NRC operates an Industry Partnership Facility (IPF) in Charlottetown, which accommodates scientists from companies demonstrating commercial potential for natural products or functional ingredients with connections to aquatic and crop resource development.

Through the IPF, companies in the early stages of their research program may benefit from NRC’s critical support, including access to specialized facilities and equipment as well as research collaboration opportunities. Residency in this technology incubator helps prepare early-stage R&D companies for their future commercial success.


Companies incubating in NRC industry partnership facilities (IPFs) have access to an impressive array of scientific equipment. In Charlottetown, these fluorescence core and analytical core platforms are primarily designed to aid in activities from the discovery of bioactive compounds to testing using in vitro and in vivo models.

Internal and external clients of NRC’s Industry Partnership Facility in Charlottetown may access specific details about the available spectrometers, imaging technology and other instrumentation.
