The EOHSI Chemical Analysis Facility Core (CAF) is a state-of-the-art chromatographic and mass spectrometric facility designed to support the Institute’s investigators and collaborators with methods development for assays of environmental contaminants or their metabolites. The CAF Laboratory is directed by Dr. Brian Buckley and specializes in the development and evaluation of novel analytical methodologies which may be applied to current and future EOHSI projects. The CAF also provides expert consultation on sample collection and analysis, quality assurance, data interpretation, instrument acquisition, and sample preparation. Laboratory personnel are also responsible for the training of students on analytical instrumentation and sample analysis. The CAF has both inorganic and organic capabilities.
