Thinking of studying earth sciences?
Cross-Faculty Elemental Analysis Facility
- Location - Pearson B03
- Telephone - 35433
The Facility houses: a Bruker M90 ICP-MS equipped with autosampler; a Varian 720 ICP-AES (axial configuration) equipped with autosampler; facilities for making dilutions and standards.
If you require use of the Facility, please contact the laboratory manager, Prof John McArthur, to discuss the work proposed.
After discussion with the laboratory manager,
prospective users from the Department of Earth Science may undertake their own work, if trained, or fill out this Geochemistry Job Requisition Form and e-mail it to the chair of the Geochemistry Scheduling Forum, Prof. John McArthur. if technical assistance is required.
Requests for assistance with student projects (MSc, MSci, PhD) must originate from supervisors.
Prospective Users from Departments other than Earth Sciences should note the following:
1] Earth Sciences will train academic, research, and support staff, and PhD students, to use of the equipment, so that user departments can then support their own needs. Trained users may undertake their own work.
2] Requests for PhD-student training must originate from supervisors.
3] User departments must support their MSci and MSc projects using their own trained personnel; such support is not available from Earth Science staff.
For such use, the nature of the samples and their method of preparation MUST be communicated in advance of analysis to the laboratory manager.
4] Neither MSc nor MSci students may use the Facility directly. They may attend an analytical session in the company of a trained user from their own department, if they wish to see how the facility works.
