Central Lab for Chemical Analysis (ZLCA)

Welcome to the Central Laboratory for Chemical Analysis at GEOMAR


The Central Laboratory for Chemical Analysis is primarily a service facility for GEOMAR.

The goal of the Central Laboratory for Chemical Analysis is the synergy of jointly used chemical-analytical equipment and techniques. For this purpose, well-trained technical staff is temporarily seconded or the existing staff of the Central Laboratory is shared.

In this way, the central laboratory promotes the exchange of knowledge and experience across research areas, as well as quality assurance and strengthens cooperation in science. It promotes the economical use of equipment and optimizes personnel expenditure.

The interaction of the central laboratory with the new training laboratory of GEOMAR ensures a continuous transfer of knowledge with simultaneous personnel support by prospective chemical laboratory assistants.

We also process external requests within the scope of the laboratory capacity.
