IMS Marine Analytical Laboratory

The IMS Marine Analytical Laboratory is a central lab complex located within the Earth & Marine Sciences Building, housing scientific instrumentation and equipment to support research in marine-related research. Major equipment includes gas chromotographs, gas chromotographs-mass spectrometers, liquid chromotography systems; carbon and nitrogen analyzers; spectrophotometers, fluorometers, and nutrient analyzers. Analytical instrumentation, instruction in use of equipment, consultation in experimental design, sampling, analysis, and data interpretation, and general assistance in all aspects of analytical science are provided by the Marine Analytical Lab Manager, Brian Dreyer.

The UCSC Plasma Analytical Facility, housed in the Marine Analytical Laboratory, has an ElementXR and XSeriesII ICP-MS, and an iCAP 7400 ICP-OES. Rob Franks provides the major staff support for this facility, with additional support from Instrument Engineer, Dan Sampson, of the Earth & Planetary Sciences Department.
