In the original association with GE Healthcare, UCSF physicians and GE researchers evaluated how best to apply magnetic resonance imaging technology to patient care at the UCSF Department of Radiology. The relationship has since expanded and resulted in the formation of the Surbeck Laboratory for Advanced Imaging at Byers Hall. The goals of this laboratory are to increase the sensitivity and specificity of in vivo MR and to develop anatomic, functional, and metabolic imaging techniques for applications in biology and medicine. The Surbeck Laboratory links imaging specialists, bioengineers, and clinicians from academia with collaborators from GE Healthcare. Additionally, it gives students from UCSF and UC Berkeley the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience in obtaining and analyzing high-field MR imaging and spectroscopic data.

American Laboratory Trading Inc. (ALT), the largest seller of pre-owned laboratory equipment in North America, and QB3, a pioneering institute driving biotechnology innovation at the University of California, signed a three-year sponsorship agreement in October 2013. As a key component of the agreement, ALT will provide lab equipment to QB3 incubators and resident companies, including those at QB3@953 in San Francisco and StartX-QB3 in Palo Alto. ALT will also provide installation and repair services, lab start-up incentive programs, and equipment financing programs.
UCSF Nikon Imaging Center
The UCSF Nikon Imaging Center at QB3/UCSF is a joint QB3/UCSF School of Medicine facility for light microscopy developed in partnership with Nikon Instruments Inc. and Technical Instruments. Opened in 2006, the facility is equipped with six microscopes, peripherals, and six imaging processing stations, providing investigators access to cutting-edge microscopy resources. There are ten company partners in the center and the value of the donated equipment is approximately $2.3 million.
UCSF Viral Diagnostics and Discovery Center
The UCSF VDDC is a new core facility arising from a multi-year collaborative agreement between UCSF and Abbott Diagnostics. Novel detection technologies employed at the center (the Virochip microarray and deep sequencing) are derived from the pioneering research of Don Ganem and Joseph DeRisi. The center focuses on detection and discovery of novel viruses associated with acute and chronic human illnesses. It is open to collaborations with academic institutions, laboratories, and hospitals on viral pathogen discovery projects. These projects will help find the viral causes of unexplained acute illnesses (respiratory infections, gastroenteritis, encephalitis), as well as chronic illnesses such as cancer.
