The Central Analytical Research Facility hosts state-of-the-art facilities to support multidisciplinary research.
Instructions for booking our equipment or contracting our services.
We have equipment to chemically analyse a wide range of gas, liquid and solid samples.
We focus on the study of genes and their functions, including genome and DNA analysis.
Our cutting-edge equipment that allows for optical microscopy, electron microscopy and specimen preparation.
We analyse the physical and mechanical properties of any item, including size, porosity, surface are and thermal qualities.
We provide complete analysis of proteins, lipids, metabolites, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and volatile organic compounds.
This laboratory focuses on how materials interact with their environment from an atomic and atomistic perspective.
Our x-ray and particles laboratory provides x-ray diffraction, x-ray fluorescence, neutron diffraction and sample preparation.
We have specialist expertise in geological sample preparation and analysis, and equipment for rock cutting and crushing, core logging, thin sections and soil analysis.
We conduct in-depth failure analysis to identify why and how metal components have failed and the corrective actions needed.
We can provide chemical information on a wide range of materials using our routine and advanced infrared (FT-IR) and Raman spectrometers, microscopes and accessories.
We can help QUT researchers access the specialist capabilities of the Australian Synchrotron, which produces X-ray and infrared radiation used in diffraction, scattering, spectroscopy and imaging experiments.
