The Environmental Analytical Laboratory (EAL) is one of core facilities supported by the Office of Research and Economic Development. It offers instrument access and analytical service not readily available from outside sources to promote research and education program and community development on a recharge basis.
Mission Statement: The EAL provides analytical expertise to facilitate research and education program and foster inter- and multi-disciplinary collaboration among academic researchers, government agencies and research-based businesses on a recharge basis. Our goal is to make expensive but frequently needed multi-purpose instruments available and affordable to all researchers at a modest cost with full technical support. To achieve our mission, the EAL offers users with high quality, timely and affordable analytical service through its reliable, well-maintained research-grade instrumentation, established standard operating procedures (SOPs), comprehensive user training and technical support. The facility supports comprehensive user training, self-operation instrument use, certain instrument drop-off service, new project and grant proposal assistance and technical consultation.
