Instrumental Chemistry Facility


Overview of Services

We are a central analysis facility located at the Department of Biology at Lunds University. Our laboratorium for chemical analysis is partly a service lab. Today we do commissions for the research groups at our department but also for other departments, universities, authorities and companies.


The laboratorium has two sections – an inorganic analysis lab and a lab for analysis of stable isotopes and polar compounds.

In this section we analyse mostly organic compounds regarding their stable isotopic composition, e. g. D/H, 13C/12C, 15N/14N and 18O/16O in solids, liquids and gases.

With help of HPLC and LC-MS, we can identify and quantify different polar compounds, e. g. pesticides in plants, carotinoids in eggs, organic acids.


This section is dedicated to typical inorganic analysis, e. g. (heavy) metals and ions in water, plants, animals and soil, pH, elemental composition.
