Clean Lab


Contact Don Chipley at chipley@geol.queensu.ca

A class 100 clean laboratory is available in the geology department for preparation of samples for measurement by the Element HR-ICP-MS and Neptune MC-ICP-MS. The low detection limits of the Element and precision of isotope ratio measurements using the Neptune demand ultra-clean conditions during sample preparation to avoid contamination. Facilities include column chromatography for element separations and purification.
