FTIR and melting point determination analytical services will be available in two formats: a "Total" service and a "DIY" service.

Total service

For the "Total" service, submitted samples will be analysed by a technician and results reported back to the client.

Analyses will be charged at £40 per sample.

DIY service

For the "DIY" service, clients will be invited to the lab to run their own samples after being trained/instructed to use the relevant technique by the responsible technician.

Charges will be £40 for the training and subsequently £10 per hour for use of the facilities (with a £5 threshold for brief use).

Notes:

Please note that the services are subject to limited technical staff and instrument availability and potential clients are strongly encouraged to opt for the "DIY" service to guarantee a relatively quick return of results. "Total" service result returns can take considerably longer and will be agreed on a case by case basis.

Enquiries

Please contact Brian Hutton at B.Hutton@hw.ac.uk if you wish to use the service or for any further enquiries.
