Analytical Resources Overview

 Godwin Laboratory Facilities

The Godwin Laboratory houses analytical equipment which is used mainly for research purposes within the Department of Earth Sciences and other Cambridge University Departments. We have a dedicated team of highly skilled and experienced Technical Staff who maintain and run the equipment. They are able to advise researchers and students on ‘best practice’, from sample collection through to final analysis, in order to obtain the highest quality results and precision.

We also have the capacity to undertake commercial work, and enquiries for analyses are welcome from outside institutions. Prices for commercial samples vary depending upon the nature of the sample, the number and combination of analyses required and the sample pre-treatment. Analyses and facilities available are listed below.
