The University of Alaska hosts many facilities with highly technical capacities. Our laboratories and field facilities are available to scientists from across the nation and around the world.
Our goal is to spend money wisely. By reducing duplication across the UA system, we ensure an optimal return on investment in each facility.
To this end, we encourage collaborative use of these facilities to enable efficient and effective analyses of samples, as well as safe and productive time in the field.
Why consider UA Labs?
Increased use of these facilities helps ensure operation and analysis under accepted standards with highly tuned and calibrated instruments. Use of these facilities also brings the professionalism offered by experienced personnel.
Services are provided by trained professionals whose primary concerns are the safety and security of scientists, staff, and students. Processing of samples is conducted according to rigorous protocols.
We invite you to explore the broad and diverse capabilities of UA Labs and to consider them for your next research effort.
Some of our larger lab facilities are highlighted here.
A dynamic, searchable compilation of laboratory facilities and capabilities will be added in the coming months.
