Developing your understanding of science and hands-on experimental skills.

At our Aberdeen City Campus we have five laboratories, and one instrumental analysis laboratory. Each lab holds approximately 20 pupils, and there’s a range of specialist resources. In our Instrumental Analysis Lab alone you’ll find over £150,000 worth of equipment, including:

  • High Performance Liquid Chromatographs (HPLC)
  • Gas Chromatograph (GC)
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR)
  • Fluorescence Spectrometer
  • Ultraviolet/Visible Spectrometer
  • Polarimeter
  • Flash Point Testers
  • Chloride Analysers
  • Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)

As well as this, there are specialist microbiology laboratories in place – an excellent resource where students at all levels get the chance to learn important practical skills and develop good laboratory practice.
