Instrument Rooms

Undergraduate chemistry and biochemistry students are the main users of our department’s scientific instruments facilities that contain over $2 million in state-of-the-art equipment.

Students begin to use scientific instruments in lower division chemistry and biochemistry classes, and become highly proficient in upper division labs and research projects, where further training and extensive instrument time is available to each student. The multiplicity and diversity of our scientific instruments ensure that each student gets a real hands-on experience with a variety of analytical techniques.

We regularly upgrade and add new instruments, so students can enhance their analytical and technical skills. The department also has a full-time instrument specialist assist with scientific instrumentation. In short, our scientific instrument facilities prepare our students for their future professional demands.

Current scientific instruments in the department include:

  • Atomic Absorption Spectrometer
  • UV-Vis Spectrophotometer
  • IR Spectrometer
  • Spectrofluorometer
  • Liquid Chromatography Instrument
  • Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer
  • Circular Dichroism Spectrophotometer
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer
