Our laboratory, based in Canberra, ACT, provides analyses on selected chemical constituents of soil, plant and water to CSIRO and external clients such as government agencies, universities and the private sector.
The analytical chemistry group (ACG) has been a core research support facility within CSIRO for more than 20 years. Based on Black Mountain, Canberra, we observe the mailing and quarantine policy for sample submissions. The ACG is an Australasian Soil and Plant Analysis Council (ASPAC) certified laboratory. We regularly participate in ASPAC inter-laboratory proficiency programs for soil and plant analyses.
We have a range of analytical instrumentation and sample preparation equipment for organic, isotopic and elemental analyses.
