The multi-disciplinary nature of the Institute of Food Science and
Engineering encourages interdepartmental sharing in purchase and
multiple use of equipment. This approach means that Affiliated Scientists have access to a much wider range of facilities and equipment than can be offered by any single department.
A brief description of the units in the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture cooperating within the IFSE follows. The names of each of the units provides a link to more information about their facilities and equipment.
- The Department
of Food Science serves as the home department for IFSE and houses the IFSE staff and offices. In addition, the department provides analytical laboratories, a pilot processing plant
with outdoor preparation facilities, thermostatically controlled
constant-temperature rooms and a computerized sensory evaluation laboratory
designed according to American Society for Testing and Materials guidelines.
- Biological and Agricultural Engineering laboratories are equipped with instruments that allow extensive,
detailed analysis of food properties.
- The Center of Excellence for Poultry Science
facilities and equipment are designed for studying food processing and
- The Biotechnology Center/Food Safety
Laboratory's separate research areas include a tissue culture
laboratory, hybridoma lab, wet microbiology lab and mouse room with
