Analytical Facility

The Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources has a suite of analytical instruments that are available to students and researchers for isotopic, elemental and organic compound analysis. The instruments are located at the Plant Breeding Institute in Cobbitty, New South Wales as part of the Camden Campus of the University of Sydney.

The instruments include:

  • Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (Thermo Fisher Scientific)
  • Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (Agilent)
  • Proton Reaction Transfer Mass Spectrometer (Ionicon)
  • High Performance Anion Exchange Chromatograph (Dionex)

Detailed descriptions of the instruments and details about sample preparation and pricing will follow soon.
