Welcome to the EBL

The Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory's mission is to provide research facilities and support for environmental analysis to students and faculty of the University of Montana. In addition, the EBL offers independent high-quality analytical services to external clients. Laboratory staff is also involved in independent research projects with collaborators from within and outside the Montana university system.

University users are invited to use the EBL equipment under the guidance of lab personnel until they are comfortable to work independently. Fees for self service users are calculated to cover supplies and maintenance of the facility. Full service analysis includes everything from the receipt of samples by the EBL until delivery of reports including analytical data and QA/QC reports. The EBL charges competitive fees for a number of contract analysis that are conducted in accordance with federally approved methods.
