The collaboratory is a shared laboratory that provides Oregon State University affiliates with access to low cost trace level, fresh water analysis instrumentation and procedures. Researchers can receive training on instrumentation and analyze samples themselves, or they can pay staff to run analyses for them.
The IWW's goals for the collaboratory are:
If you are beginning a project or looking for analysis equipment - please contact lab manager, Kathy Motter. She is pleased to give tours of the facility, discuss analysis methods, and provide training. She may even be able to acquire new instrumentation specific for your needs.
The collaboratory's location is in the Oak Creek Building and includes a well-equipped lab, an office workspace with computers for data download and analysis, and field supplies - check below for a complete list of instrumentation and capabilities.
Fees are kept to a minimum but vary depending on the equipment needed and whether the investigator will perform the analyses themselves.
Other equipment will be added to the laboratory over time. If you have specific needs, please let us know - we hope this lab will be a valuable resource for you!
