Laboratory Network Management Office

Founded in 2004 the main aims of the Laboratory Network Management Office of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad are developing educational and research services and equipping the laboratory with up–to-date and advanced systems of analysis and to acquire ISO standard.


  • Providing easy access to laboratory efficiency for all professionals and researchers all over the country
  • Maintaining, repairing, calibrating and improving laboratory instruments
  • Buying laboratory instruments from local and international companies
  • Being responsive to academics’ needs


The Laboratory Network Management Office of Mashhad University is equipped with a variety of advanced and precise devices such as a spectroscopy analysis, elemental analysis and thermal analysis. This well-equipped laboratory is ready to provide research services such as measuring and analyzing data resulting from experimental research, providing advice regarding the analysis of samples and analysis of research projects and providing some supplementary equipment and facilities for researchers and scholars in universities and industry sectors all over the country. The Laboratory Network Management Office is one of the members of Iran Nanotechnology Laboratory Network.
