Single Molecule Analysis in Real-Time (SMART) Center

The SMART (Single Molecule Analysis in Real-Time) Center is an NSF-seeded, shared-use facility providing university researchers with single molecule detection and manipulation tools to track and analyze biomolecules with unprecedented detail.

Location:  3080 Chemistry Building



The SMART Center provides access to state-of-the art instrumentation, including single molecule spectroscopy and imaging, laser tweezers, and atomic force microscopy; as well as experienced support in experimental planning and analysis. We would also be happy to give your group a short demonstration of our capabilities and discuss potential applications.


For a brief description of the types of experiments we support, check out the SMART Ways of Seeing!


Open consultation hours are available every Monday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 3080 Chemistry. Please feel free to stop by!

To schedule time on an instrument or submit a project request, visit our MiCORES reservation system.  If you do not have a MiCORES account, see instructions to register here.
