Research Instrumentation Center

The Research Instrumentation Center is a core facility in the Department of Chemistry that manages the shared departmental instrumentation. Most instruments are made available to users on a walkup basis, but samples can also be submitted for either high-resolution MS or ICP-MS analysis by our professional staff. Please see the sidebar to submit a request for training on one of our instruments or to submit samples for MS analysis.
