In-vitro culture laboratory: The laboratory contains 3 culture chambers and 2 acclimatization rooms allowing micropropagation for the purposes of crop sanitation (recovery of virus-infected cultures), regeneration of endangered plants or plant breeding.

Controlled glass greenhouse: The greenhouse is a closed structure having an area of 184 m2. It is compartmentalized and adapted to receive a maximum of useful sunlight for plant growth. This structure is dedicated to research experiments on plants.

Nitrogen production unit: The production capacity is 10 L/h of N2 in liquid or gas phase. The objective is to ensure autonomy for the CRBt and contribute to meeting the needs of its partner institutions in terms of liquid Nitrogen that is useful in cryogeny (conservation of fragile biological samples), molecular biology and histology as well as the requirements of chromatographic equipment.

Vivarium and BSL3 laboratory: The CRBt is striving to acquire, by 2018, a class 3 vivarium, comprising a BSL3 laboratory. This facility will be accredited according to international standards et dedicated to research works requiring the manipulation of infectious agents for the purpose of developing preventive or therapeutic treatments, using test protocols which satisfy the strictest scientific standards.

GMO detection laboratory: This is an accredited laboratory according to the ISO 17025 standard. It is dedicated to molecular analyses for the detection and quantification of GMOs that might be present in a given product. This laboratory will allow a better control of imported seeds and detection of GMOs in imported products intended for human or animal consumption. It will be an asset for the enforcement of the national regulatory framework regarding GMOs.
