ALERT

In Observance of U.S. Holiday, Memorial Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday May 25th, 2020. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday May 26th, 2020. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

ALERT

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly all Stanford scientific core facilities using the iLab system have ceased lab operations.  Exceptions are the TKTC, which is offering mouse sperm and embryo cryopreservation services and the Fly Facility, which continues to make Drosophila food.  Online services, such as the Genetics Bioinformatics Service Center and new on-line data analysis options at SCi3, continue to be available.  The staffs of all of the core facilities remain available (on-line, not in-person) for discussions including experiment planning, data analysis, and manuscript preparation.

Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences

Overview of Services

   

Earth Materials Lab

 
The Earth Materials Lab is a shared laboratory in Stanford's School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences predominately used for rock preparation and mineral separation. The Earth Materials Lab provides access, hands on training, and guidance for common rock preparation equipment and mineral separation procedures. Common usages include zircon, quartz, and feldspar separation; powdering samples for geochemical or isotopic analysis; and cutting rocks with diamond saws.
Facilities are available to anyone affiliated with Stanford University.

 

Benson Lab

 
Our laboratory investigate fundamental characteristics of carbon dioxide storage in geologic formations by conducting core flooding experiments and predictive modeling.

We provide access to some of our equipment for rock sample preparation and analysis to characterize petrophysical and multi-phase flow properties of the analyzed rock samples.
