Environmental Analytical Lab

The Environmental Analytical Laboratory is a centralized facility that provides analyses of a wide variety of environmental materials, including water, soil and biological samples.

Researchers can search for major and trace elements, selected chemical species and nutrients and organic compounds. The facility provides services not readily available from outside sources to promote research and community development and features training, self-operation instrument use, sample drop-off service, new project and grant proposal assistance and technical consultation.
