    Equipments Details


    The Goldwater Environmental Laboratory (GEL) is a shared-use facility available to all research staff, faculty, and students of all disciplines. Managed by Tom Colella, the facility encompasses seven laboratories and is part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Research Technical Services group. The facility is operated by a team of ASU personnel committed to providing the tools necessary to meet the analytical needs of researchers while creating a valuable educational experience for users. Though most users prefer to receive individualized hands-on training, enabling them to perform their own analyses, complete analytical services are also available.
