Welcome to the instrument facility for biogeochemical analyses at KBC and the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science (EMG)!

The infrastructure provides instruments for analysis of key chemical parameters in terrestrial and aquatic biogeochemical and ecological research and as such is of major interest for a large range of research groups. BAF act as a core analytical facility for several major research projects run by researcher at EMG together with their collaborators and now opens up for other users at Umeå and other universities.

The facility covers a scope of different instruments including:
