The analytical chemistry team sits within ANSTO's Institute for the Environment (IER) and  supports various studies such as trace metal analysis in aquatic environments, and measurement of pollutant transport in groundwater.
The laboratories are equipped with sophisticated instrumentation such as: quadrupole inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrometer (ICPMS), a simultaneous inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICPAES), Anion and Cation chromatographs (IC) and isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS).
