IMA has 20 modern and well-equipped research laboratories, coordinated by teachers, for the development of dissertation and thesis works, in addition to basic research, projects and consultancy services. It also has a laboratory for experimental classes, a practical discipline taught in the Graduate Program, in the Nanotechnology Undergraduate course and in the Lato sensu, in addition to operational training. In the constitution of the laboratory infrastructure, the IMA also has 5 laboratories in common use for characterization, 3 of which are divided into: spectroscopic, thermal, rheological (LAPIN 1); microscopic, X-ray and porosimetry (LAPIN 2) and one of characterization by high and low fields nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and 2 technology laboratories, one for processing (LAPTEC 1) and the other for mechanical tests (LAPTEC 2). A new common-use laboratory was set up to house new equipment from teachers' research projects. The research laboratories in synthesis have, in addition to glassware, reactors with small equipment suitable for the usual chemical procedures.

Several equipment of the latest generation has been purchased and, among these, the main equipment that the IMA includes are listed below:
