Spokane Facilities Available

SP3NW is located adjacent to the WSU Health Sciences Spokane campus, in Spokane’s University District, home of the iconic Gateway Bridge and three blocks from the Spokane River and the Centennial Trail. 

The University District is an innovation “Hub Zone” in eastern Washington State. SP3NW is housed within the Ignite Northwest/WSU Center for Innovation building, 120 N. Pine St., Spokane, WA. WSU’s Applied Sciences Laboratory, specializing in applied Raman spectroscopy and high-energy materials, is the largest anchor tenant.

Five additional anchor tenants specialize in anti-infective coatings and medical devices (Iasis), hospital asset redistribution (H-Source), ultra-pure graphite and ceramics manufacturing (Pyrotek), and genetic diagnostics (Allele Diagnostics).

This building also houses the WSU Center for Innovation, WSU’s Biomedical Design and Engineering Core, local representatives of the Washington State Department of Commerce, the Washington Small Business Development Center, and WSU’s Innovation & Research Engagement Office.

The adjacent WSU Health Sciences campus comprises the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, the College of Nursing, the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the Spokane Academic Center. On campus, core facilities that are available to SP3NW member companies include:

    • Flow cytometry
    • Genomics
    • Histology
    • Imaging
    • Mass spectrometry
    • Microscopy
    • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
    • Biomedical design & engineering
    • Program of laboratory animal resources.

In The University District, business and education grow together, and SP3NW will help researchers bridge the gaps between lab-based discovery and real-world impact on health care. Companies and innovative products will cross this new virtual bridge just as people cross the Gateway Bridge.
