Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science - Instrumentation

The Department has a wide assortment of modern instrumentation at the Madison Campus, seldom found in a small-college environment.  These are the same instruments used in industry and larger universities.  The instruments listed below are available for undergraduate research and all students are encouraged to become familiar with most of them. The Science Building is wired to the University LAN and wireless access (Tsunami) is available throughout the building and Campus.
