Bigelow Laboratory Facilities
Our scientists are at the forefront of ocean science in developing, testing, and applying advanced technologies and methods as part of their oceanographic research. Bigelow Laboratory offers researchers access to methodologies that open new frontiers of scientific inquiry through a wide array of applications, both at the laboratory, in the field, and for use in other scientific disciplines.
The largest research facility at Bigelow Laboratory is the Provasoli-Guillard National Center for the Culture of Marine Phytoplankton (CCMP), which is the official phytoplankton collection in the United States and provides cultures for scientists around the world. With more than 2,600 strains, the CCMP is the world's largest phytoplankton collection.
