Biogeochemical Analyses Laboratory (BAL)

Last changed: 09 September 2020

Our biogeochemical analysis laboratory performs analyzes of soil and plant material as well as of water and gas samples for both internal and external customers.

Our biogeochemical analysis laboratory performs analyzes of soil and plant material as well as water and gas samples for both internal and external customers. Today we can offer the following analysis:

◾Ammonium, nitrate and phosphate in water and in soil extracts by Autoanalyzer

◾Carbon dioxide and methane in gas samples by gas chromatography

◾Nitrogen- and phosphorus in plant material (Kjeldahl digested) with Autoanalyzer

◾Anjoner in water by ion chromatography

Cations in water by ICP-AES

◾Elemental analysis of plant material (digested in acid)

◾pH and conductivity

◾Total carbon and total nitrogen in water

◾Total carbon and total nitrogen in soil and plant samples

PLFA in soil samples

◾Stabile carbon and nitrogen isotopes in plant, water and soil samples (SLU Stable Isotope Laboratory, SSIL)

◾Stabile carbon and nitrogen isotopes in gas samples (SLU Stable Isotope Laboratory, SSIL)

◾Stabile oxygen and hydrogen isotopes in water samples (SLU Stable Isotope Laboratory, SSIL)

Stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes in specific compounds, Compound-Specific Isotope Analysis (SLU Stable Isotope Laboratory (SSIL)

In addition to these analyzes, perform laboratory also regularly commissioned as grinding, weighing and processing of samples.
