The AAC and external researchers
First formed in 1991, the Advanced Analytical Centre (AAC) is a central analytical facility that proudly supports research and industry, providing a wide range of analytical instrumentation backed by experienced and professional staff.
The AAC provides access to a range of techniques covering the fields of microscopy and microanalysis, inorganic and organic chemical analysis, mineralogy/crystallography and genetic analysis. A full list of the current facilities can be found at AAC instrumentation.
The centre provides a full range of services from sample preparation through to final analysis and reporting as well as specific, hands-on training in instrument use. It is also a Linked Laboratory to the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF).
If using any of the facilities for the first time please discuss your requirements with a member of the AAC staff in order that we may help and advise you of the most appropriate method to obtain the results required.
Specific enquiries regarding details of a particular technique can be made directly to the officer in charge of this area (see staff listing).
