Instrument Network

Part of the CASPiE collaborative for undergraduate research is the remote instrumentation resource. This networked resource allows CASPiE to have an authentic research focus for our laboratory course by making a suite of high-end instruments available to first- and second-year students via the Internet. These instruments are integrated into the research projects that the students will be carrying out in the course.

• FT-Raman
• High Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC)
• Gas Chromatograph-FID
• Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS)

Using the Network
Instructors can demonstrate instruments remotely in lecture courses and teach their operation and purpose.

Students submit their own samples and either receive back data collected by lab staff or connect to an instrument and acquire data on their samples remotely.
