The University Instrument Center (UIC) is a multi-user facility equipped with a variety of analytical instrumentation, specializing in chromatography and mass spectrometry. UIC staff are available to assist with classroom and laboratory demonstrations, run class samples, and provide new researcher training. Staff will analyze your samples for you, or train you or your students to operate instrumentation on your own. All instrumentation and services are free of charge to WWU users, except for consumables.
