The CHNS Analyzer allows the determination of four elements (CHNS) simultaneously. Applications include Organic Chemistry, Petro-Chemistry, Environmental, Agronomy and Marine Science and Material Characterization.
Operated with a year-round permanent staff, the Labrador Institute Research Station (LIRS) is located in North West River, Labrador (approximately 40 minutes from Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador) and is operated by the Labrador Institute of Memorial University. The Labrador Institute Research Station was created to provide leading-edge science laboratories and a field station that supports research and science education in the remote regions of Labrador. The facility includes employee office space, scientific laboratories (a prep (wet) lab, an analytical lab and a geological sample prep lab), an archaeology collections room, a shared research space with GIS workstations and a wide-format printer, accommodation space for four people, a full kitchen and dining area, and short-term storage space. Internet, wifi, telephone and video-conferencing capabilities are also available at the LIRS.
The Labrador Institute and the Labrador Institute Research Station are leading centres of research, outreach and education, by and for the North. Since the Labrador Institute is located on the homelands of the Innu and the Inuit, the Labrador Institute has a special obligation to the Indigenous peoples of the region and therefore works in partnership on research and education programming. The LIRS is working to offer research and logistical support to those looking to expand, begin, or continue work for and in the Labrador region. The LIRS is currently supporting and/or taking part in climate change and environmental monitoring research, investigations in water use and its contaminants, interior archaeology, archaeological mitigation, ecological research, remediation studies, soil science and Northern-based agricultural investigations.
The laboratories at the LIRS are maintained to high health and safety standards and offer analytical and sample preparation (wet) labs. The labs have the capacity to support diverse research projects in many physical science fields.
