FULL DESCRIPTION/BACKGROUND OF THE LAB


The analytical lab is situated in the Microbial, Biochemical, and Food Biotechnology building and has served the university community and general public’s analyses needs for many years.

The facility is open to analyses from the public on various types of analyses. We try and offer a service custom made to your needs using HPLC, LCMSMS, GC, and GCMS. To that end we are open to offer a once off analysis or form part of your research project over long periods.

We invite you to come talk to us about your analysis needs.
