Entomology facilities

The John Innes Centre’s Entomology Facility is a Platform Technology service that provides the biological components for many science projects.

Native and quarantined exotic invertebrates are maintained within a purpose-built insectary, consisting of five large walk-in growth rooms, a high containment laboratory, a specialised insect handling unit and a glass-walled growth room for maintaining plants under natural light.

The Entomology facility has capacity for 96 cages (600 x 600 x 600mm) within five controlled environment rooms for maintaining and working with quarantined invertebrates.

Outside of the quarantined area there are locations where native and non-licenced invertebrates can be maintained either under controlled laboratory or heated glasshouse conditions.
