Organic Molecular Biomarkers
The Organic Molecular Biogeochemistry laboratory is equipped with a range of devices for extraction, purification, and analysis of organic molecular biomarkers. These include:
- Dionex (ASE 350) Accelerated Solvent Extractor
- TurboVap LV
- High-precision scale
- Nabertherm muffle oven
- Agilent 7820 A GC fitted with both S/SL injector and a FID
In the future, we will expand the lab to include an GC-MS to enable measurements of the isotopic composition of individual compounds in-house.
The laboratory is also equipped with the possibility to storing cold or frozen samples in laboratory freezers or in our walk-in cold room.
