Modern instrumentation is available to students even in their beginning laboratory experiences. High-throughput autosamplers ensure that all student in the freshman and sophomore courses have the opportunity to analyze data from their own experiment.
Upper-level and research students have hands-on access with a wide variety of instrumentation through regular classes and research.
