University of Ottawa CAREG Laboratory for the Analysis of Natural and Synthetic Environmental Toxins (LANSET)

Ottawa, ON, CA
Company Type:
Academic Core Facility

LANSET is a research and training facility that supports analyses of a wide range of natural and synthetic environmental compounds. In addition to providing analytical support to CAREG, this laboratory also serves the broader Canadian and international scientific community. Guidelines for sample submission
LANSET occupies one entire floor of CAREG (14 rooms), has a state-of-the-art extraction laboratory, consisting of an ultra-trace clean lab with controlled atmosphere, a state-of-the-art analytical facility which includes a wide range of mass spectrometers, including Inductively-Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry, triple-MS, and Time-of-Flight accurate mass capabilities. These instruments are used mainly to identify natural products and environmental contaminants in plants and environmental samples.

The LANSET facility is accredited for mercury analysis by the Canadian Association for Environmental Analytical Laboratories, and specializes in radiometric analysis of natural isotopes including lead-210 and radium-226 for dating sediment and peat cores for use in paleoenvironmental reconstructions. The facility is further enhanced with sample handling, storage and tracking facilities, greenhouses, environmental growth cabinets, and herbarium. In recognition of these contributions to the broader scientific community, LANSET was awarded the status of ‘University of Ottawa Research Facility’ in 2006.
