The organic geochemical laboratory was commissioned in June 2007 and is in rooms 340  and 344, Level 3 of building E7B. It is divided into a wet chemistry  lab with four fume cupboards and an instrument lab (total floor space  72m2). It is adjacent to the 2nd and 3rd year chemistry teaching labs.

It contains an Agilent Benchtop GC-MS (6890N and 5975B), a Dionex Accelerated Solvent Extractor (ASE300), a Leco Pegasus GCxGC-ToFMS with FID, a Liquid chromatography-MS system, a Buehler Isomet 4000 Linear Precision Saw, and a Millipore Water  Purification System. Other ancillary equipment includes a rotary  evaporator, furnace, drying ovens, fridge, freezer, low temperature  incubator and the usual glassware.

More details on the facilities are in the Organic Geochemistry research group.

This lab is a shared facility at Macquarie University, dedicated to trace hydrocarbon analysis. Collaborators at Macquarie University include the Palaeobiology group in Biological Sciences, the Department of Environment and Geography, and the Department of Chemistry & Biomolecular Sciences. We have many collaborators in other groups in Australia and elsewhere.
