Science Analytical Facility (SAF) Science Analytical Facility (SAF)



The Science Analytical Facilities are located within the Faculty of Science.


The experienced technical staff can train personnel in the development of the analytical techniques associated with their samples, including preparation and instrument operation. Once trained, users can book the instruments to carry out their own research and analysis.


Alternatively, the team can provide an analytical service. We are used to handling a wide variety of sample types and invite you to work alongside our analysts to design bespoke methods for your samples.   


This service is available to the University Of East Anglia (UEA), the Norwich Research Park (NRP) and the wider scientific and business community in the UK and abroad.
