Our faculty, students and stakeholders have access to a wide range of equipment e.g.   HPLC; GCMS; AASFS/GF; ICP OES; TOC; FTIR; UV-VIS; XRD, SPM among others.

Aqueous Geochemistry Laboratory

The Aqueous Geochemistry Laboratory emphasizes the elemental analysis of rocks, soil, water, biologic materials, and experimental laboratory solutions. Major equipment includes a Thermo Scientific inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES) and a  ion chromatograph (IC). The laboratory also contains auxiliary equipment commonly employed in wet chemical research, including balances, pH meters, centrifuges, water baths, and drying ovens.

Microbiology Laboratory

The Microbiology Laboratory contains standard microbiology and molecular biology equipment, including an autoclave, sterile HEPA-filtered benches, centrifuges, PCR workstations, and DGGE and gel electrophoresis equipment. The laboratory also houses a Flx800 Bio-Tek microplate reader spectrophotometer, epifluorescent microscope equipped with a digital camera, among other equipment.

Nutrient Analysis Laboratory

The lab provides a wide-range of analyses for environmental and biological samples using state-of-the-art analytical equipment and techniques.

Marine Science Lab

The lab performs chemical analysis in support of the research community. The services offered include Seawater nutrients and Elemental (CHN) analysis.

Air Quality Lab

The lab is equipped with sensor technologies for indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring
