EcoCore



EcoCore Analytical Services supports the educational, research, and outreach missions of CSU by providing state-of-the art facilitates, analytical capabilities, and expert support for environmental analyses to diverse communities on and off campus. EcoCore provides the infrastructure to push the bounds of ecosystem science by providing the proving grounds for novel techniques and detection methods to better understand the natural world. EcoCore is a campus-wide, common-use facility for a broad suite of elemental, molecular, microbial, and isotopic analysis of soil, plant, water and other environmental samples. Work areas are separated for specialized applications such as sample processing, sample storage, analytical areas, an isotope facility (CSU-IsoLab) and a clean room for molecular techniques. We offer a range of standard analyses that cover the majority of environmental inquiries and have the ability and know-how to offer many more to clients both on- and off-campus.
