Ocean Sciences Facilities
CREAIT labs related to the ocean sciences:
The Aquatic Research Cluster (ARC) is located at the Ocean Sciences Centre (OSC) at Logy Bay and provides analytical research facilities and support services to faculty researchers, under-graduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows within the University as well as government agencies and private sector R&D companies.
ARC currently has analytical laboratories specializing in the determination of organic compounds (lipids and amino acids) and elements (carbon and nitrogen) in samples from the aquatic environment. The lipid lab has instrumentation for performing extractions, thin layer chromatography (TLC), and gas chromatography (GC). The C/N lab has instrumentation for determining dissolved and particulate organic carbon and nitrogen (DOC, POC, DON, PON).
Samples may be submitted to be run by the ARC staff, or users may process their own samples, in which case training will be provided by ARC staff.
