The list below is of specific equipment on the Polytechnic campus that our group has access to and in some cases, directly manages. In addition to this list, ASU encourages and enables sharing of resources across all of its campuses – so if a piece of equipment you need is not available here, you may find it at this link: https://sharedresources.asu.edu/
