UC Davis Analytical Lab performs analyses on selected chemical constituents of soil, plant, water, wastewater and feed in support of agricultural and environmental research.
Currently, there are a few clients from ANR that use this service, but given ANR's recent and continued growth, the lab's services may be of use to academics and staff as well.
The receiving department is conveniently located on the outskirts of UC Davis campus (Hoagland Annex) for easy drop-off and pick-up of samples. In addition to analytical services, the lab provides project assistance in the areas of analytical, agricultural and environmental chemistry.
The lab is equipped with many instruments including, but not limited to, microwave digestors, flow injection analyzers, various carbon and nitrogen analyzers, ion chromatograph system, inductively coupled plasma emission spectrometers, liquid chromatography mass spectrometer, crude fiber analyzer and crude fat analyzer.
UC Davis Analytical Lab is proud to announce it will be filing for ISO 19025 accreditation in early 2023. This speaks to the quality of data produced by highly trained analysts on staff. The lab participates in many proficiency programs as well as in-house quality practices to ensure that you receive accurate and consistent data results for your projects.
The lab and receiving areas have expanded considerably in the last year with additional equipment, methods and staff to ensure quality data with the shortest turnaround time possible.
