Organisation profile

The Instrument Development Center (IDC) of the Office of Research and Development at NCKU is an instrument sharing center equipped with advanced and expensive instruments for users from various backgrounds in fields of science, biology, medicine, engineering, and social science. Our mission is to provide a platform of instrumental analysis for students and faculties in their research and teaching activities as well as in their collaborations with industrial partners, while maximizing the usefulness of the instruments and the effectiveness of the operation through a centralized and transparent management system. In addition to analytical services and instrument related education and training, we also provide equipment design and manufacturing for the purpose of teaching and research. With the support of both NCKU and National Science Council, we now have 41 advanced instruments and 19 technical experts. We also have 38 consulting professors in various backgrounds. To make access easy for students and faculty, IDC has an user reservation system on its website ( for the use of facilities at our Center, while instruments with other institutes and centers at NCKU are also listed by categories ( with direct links for user browsing. For technical improvement and collaboration enhancing, we plan to expand our instrument sharing scheme to an international level, while working with instrument manufacturers and researchers for the development of new techniques and instruments.
