Resources for UVM ResearchOne mission of our lab is to provide analytical services to University researchers. We are able to house instrumentation that is normally not affordable in individual labs. Analysis is available either by hands-on use or a fee-per-sample basis. Training and support are available. Current Pricing
coupled plasma atomic emission spectrophotometer) is used for
of metals (and a few nonmetals) in liquid samples. We now have a
Optima DV thanks to an award from the USDA-NRI competitive grants
This instrument operates both in a radial mode for normal samples and
axial mode for greater sensitivity. Common elements analyzed include
Ca, Cd, Cu, Cr, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Ni, P, and Zn.
CN Elemental Analyzer (carbon
and nitrogen) is used for quantification of these elements in solid
samples. Sample size is usually 20-100 mg and the working range is
Samples need to be finely ground for repeatable results.
Flow Injection Autoanalyzer is
for rapid colorimetric analysis. Our current instrument (Lachat
AE) has manifolds for nitrate, ammonium, phosphate, chloride, and total
Kjeldahl digests. Many other colorimetric procedures are available.
instrument can easily process 80-100 samples per hour and is useful for
that generate large sample amounts.
