Centre for Analytical Science

The Centre for Analytical Science (CAS), launched in March 2008, provides a focus for analytical research and educational activities in the Department of Chemistry.

Our research is focused on the development and application of new measurement systems and an important aspect of the work in CAS is the translation of advanced measurements into new research areas. Our objective is to understand and discern what fellow researchers would like to know and then to devise, develop or discover the appropriate measurement systems.

Our research is necessarily collaborative in nature and we work with biomedical, sport and materials scientists, clinicians, chemical engineers, physicists, pharmacists, psychologists and, of-course, fellow chemists. The Centre provides a point of contact for national and international collaborators from academia, industry and other research organisations.
