The University of Alberta BASL Laboratory (BASL) was established in the 1980s as a premier global research, teaching and service facility. We provide cost-effective chemical analytical services in environmental, ecological and medical disciplines for University researchers, government agencies and private sectors.

The BASL is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 for specific tests by Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA), an accreditation body in Canada to ISO/IEC 17025.  The lab has the capability to provide inorganic, organic, low level mercury, and stable isotope ratio analytical services. Our lab is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation located in a 550 square meter facility in the Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science (CCIS).
