Plant Tissue and Sediment Analysis Laboratory

The Plant Tissue and Sediment Analysis Laboratory specializes in nutrient and chemical analyses of environmental water and sediments, including a wide variety of extractable nutrients. The lab evaluates surface water and plant tissue using state-of-the-art equipment for research, service and training in sediment sample collection and nutrient analyses.

The lab provides analysis of:

  • Run only Phosphorus content
  • Weighed and Run Phosphorus content
  • Fulled Prepped and Run Phosphorus content
  • Run only Carbon and Nitrogen content
  • Weighed and Run Carbon and Nitrogen content
  • Fulled Prepped and Run Carbon and Nitrogen content
