Service activities at the National Biomedical EPR Center are diverse in nature and include
- Provision of engineering drawings, advice, and, in some cases, hardware;
- Assistance with construction of EPR and sample-handling equipment;
- Carrying out of HFSS simulations to assist in resonator design;
- Provision of novel spin traps and synthetic methodology;
- Recording and analysis of EPR spectra at 1–35 GHz;
- Provision of advice regarding commissioning, testing, and maintaining of cryogenic equipment;
- Matrix diagonalization computer simulations; and
- Performance of rapid-freeze quench spectrokinetic experiments.
These activities involve the entire complement of faculty and staff at the EPR Center and often graduate students.

- Training is available for young scientist for up to a two-week visit, with some financial support. A new type of training for advance visitors is now offered for one to three months.
- Principles of EPR Training Workshops were held in 2004, 2006, 2009, 2012, and 2015. They are developed to offer practical, specific training for students and postdocs new to EPR technology.
