The School of Science at ECU has a number of active research groups working across several disciplines including, The Centre for Ecosystem Management (CEM, firstname.lastname@example.org), the Centre of Integrative Metabolomics and Computational Biology (CIM-CB, email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org), the Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research (CMER, email@example.com), the Mine Water and Environment Research (MiWER, firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition to providing specialised analytical chemistry to research centres in the School of Science, the Science Analytical Facility also supports other research within and external to ECU in the fields of forensic science, medical and sport science, health and food science, agriculture and grain science, and industrial chemistry. Through the alliance with Thermo-Fisher Scientific, the Science Analytical Facility provides access to state-of-the art research instrumentation, as well as staff who have the knowledge, expertise and skills to produce reliable solutions to today’s most challenging analytical questions related to fundamental and applied research.
The ECU Science Analytical Facility is housed in state-of-the-art laboratories located on the Joondalup Campus. Cutting edge facilities and instrumentation include:
The Science Analytical Facility also houses a picoSpin TM for H-NMR, a ISQ GC-FID, a LGR Liquid Water Isotope analyser (LWIA) for the determination of H and O isotopes in water, a Hapsite portable GC-MS, a Nicolet™ iS™5 FT-IR Spectrometer for chemical fingerprinting of flat solid, powder and aqueous samples, a Lachat nutrients analyser, 2 x Quanta 4000 Waters capillary ion analysers, 2X Agilent Capillary electrophoresis systems, a MEP Multiwave GO microwave digestion system, a CAMAG HPTLC with ADC 2 + TLC visualizer + Linomat 5, various UV and fluorescence spectrometers, a Fisher Biotec Sublimate freeze drier and a number of centrifuges (e.g., Thermo Heraeus Megafuge 8, Thermo Savant SPD1010 Speedvac).
