Do you need access to analytical instrumentation to support to your R&D activities?

BCIT’s Chemistry Department offers a range of services for companies or academic institutions looking to carrying out chemical analysis but without the budget to purchase the instrumentation required.

Instrumentation available includes:

  • Inductively Coupled Plasma -Tandem Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS/MS)
  • Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS)
  • Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS)
  • Gas Chromatography (GC)
  • Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Ion Chromatography (IC)
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR)
  • Ultraviolet (UV) / Visible Spectroscopy
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR)
  • Fluorescence Spectroscopy
  • Automated Solid Phase Extraction
  • Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) and Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (GFAAS).
