MCAL is a chemical analysis facility capable of determining analytes in various matrices. A variety of instruments are available for the separation, identification and quantification of these analytes. The equipment in the MCAL facility includes GC, GC-MS, LC, LC-MS, ICP-OES, spectrophotometers and electrophoresis equipment. The laboratory also has access to NMR, FT-IR, a clean laboratory for Hg analysis, and other routine analytical equipment.

Samples can be analysed by the laboratory as individual samples, researchers can use the facility to analyse their own samples to support their research or joint projects can be run within the facility. Labor for the projects can be supplied both by MCAL and by the researcher. Training on the theory and use of equipment can be supplied by MCAL staff.

Fees for use of the equipment are charged on a hourly basis or a sample basis depending on the nature of the project at both industrial and academic rates. Fees are charged to keep the laboratory state-of-art with modern equipment and supplies.
