Facility/equipment: Facility

    Equipments Details


    Research Facility, John Murrray Labs. Rooms 7, 18-20.

    Experimental microbial and aqueous geochemistry. This Research Facility focusses on the growth and maintenance of microbes (non-pathogenic, principally bacteria). Experimental measurements are performed related to microbial metabolic activities of biogeochemical interest, including bioleaching experiments in collaboration with chemists. Processing and basic measurements of water, soils, minerals, plants and microbes, DNA extractions related to molecular biology of microbes, and plant germination and growth experiments are performed. It also is engaged in mineral synthesis and characterisation, including surface charge titrations, ATR-FTIR.
