Contact and booking

Do you have a material you need to analyze? Do you find it difficult to know which analysis methods are best? Contact us and we can discuss suitable analysis methods that suit your needs.

If you have training to use the instruments yourself, book your time in the different labs' booking calendars.

If you do not have an education and are unsure of which lab suits your needs and what you need to have analyzed, contact us at this email address lumia@ltu.se for a discussion about what is suitable for your particular samples.
