In conducting our research on legumes, we use modern pieces of equipment that have a variety of purposes.
Gas Chromatography (GC)
Two Shimadzu GCs with flame ionisation detection for fatty acid, essential oil, amino acids, carboxylates and ethylene analyses among many other applications. Contact Greg Cawthray for pricing and queries on other applications.
A Hewlett Packard 5890GC with 5970 Mass Selective Detector (GC-MS). Contact Greg Cawthray for pricing and queries on applications.
HPLC waters liquid chromatographs with photodiode array (UV/Vis), fluorescence, conductivity, and evaporative light scattering detection modes, as well as fraction collection capabilities. Applications include carboxylates, phenolics, biogenic amines, organic solutes, amino acids, cations/anions, carbohydrates, herbicides and plant pigments. Contact Greg Cawthray for pricing and queries on applications.
Several UV/Vis spectrophotometers are located within the School. Contact Greg Cawthray for queries on applications and access.
