Dielectric services and facilities
CSIRO's Petrophysics Laboratory offers a range of dielectric measurement options in a broad frequency range for solid and drill cutting samples.
Air Conditioning Research Facilities
CSIRO has established a team of building energy experts and state-of-the-art test facilities to develop and assess conventional air conditioning and new solar cooling techniques and technologies.
CSIRO provides a range of acoustic research, measurement and consulting services to help improve the acoustic environments in buildings.
QGF and QGF-E
These techniques allow us to understand hydrocarbon migration and accumulation. They detect current and palaeo-oil zones by measuring the fluorescence from hydrocarbons sealed in fluid inclusions and at the surface of siliciclastic rocks.
CSIRO Library Services
Library Services delivers services to CSIRO researchers assisting with accessing resources, publishing the results of research, measuring publication impact and data management.
Strontium as a chemical tracer
CSIRO Petroleum utilizes strontium as a chemical tracer to discriminate between plant and animal products grown in different locations.
The CSIRO thermal laboratory can measure properties such as thermal conductivity and thermal resistance (R-value) of a wide range of insulating and conducting materials.
The CSIRO Facade engineering and weather performance of buildings group specialises in evaluating and certifying the various elements associated with the building envelope.
Energy efficient electrical connections
We offer consulting and training services for maximising the efficiency of high current electrical connections used in primary metal production industries.
Argon dating meets exploration challenges
Successful exploration relies on knowledge of basin formation and thermal history of sedimentary rock and hydrocarbon migration. CSIRO’s argon dating services can help petroleum companies better determine potential locations for drilling petroleum wells.
FRR Culture Collection
The current holdings of the FRR Culture Collection consists of fungal strains of importance in the food and related industries. There are approximately 250 yeasts and 4000 filamentous fungi, not all of which are listed in this catalogue.
Biomolecular Interaction Facility
CSIRO’s Biomolecular Interaction Facility specialises in the application of sensor platform technology to resolve the binding specificity, kinetic parameters and affinity associated with molecular interactions.
Food Manufacturing Pilot Plant
CSIRO's Food Manufacturing Pilot Plant is a unique national facility with access to significant expertise and innovative technologies for the food industry.
Improving bacterial fermentation reactions
We help Australian industries improve their fermentation reactions and assist with scale-up in both the bacterial and mammalian cell culture systems on a fee-for-services basis.
Developing techniques for Australian coal mining
The longwall top coal caving method could double the amount of coal recoverable from Australia’s thick seams of underground coal while improving safety and reducing the risk of spontaneous combustion.
