Laboratory and Equipment Infrastructure
Seven laboratories support the research activities of the Program, namely: Soil Chemistry, Soil Fertility, Soil Environmental Chemistry, Soil Physics, Soil Management and Conservation, Soil Microbiology, Mineralogy and Soil Micromorphology. Among the main equipment available in these laboratories, we can highlight ICP-OES; Atomic absorption spectrometer with flame techniques, graphite furnace and hydride generation; Ultraviolet-visible-near infrared spectrometer with diffuse reflectance chamber; Infrared Spectrometer by Fourier Transform (FTIR); INFRA RED GAS ANALYSER (IRGA - LIQUOR); Chamber for efflux of CO2 from soil; CHNS Elementary Analyzer, ATD / TG / DSC Thermal Analyzer; X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer; Gas Chromatograph; Steam pressure osmometer; Permeameter of Guelph; Bench penetrometer; Richards Chambers; Yooder apparatus; Bench dynamometer; Fluorometer; Porometer; and Scholander chamber.
Center for Research Support (CENAPESQ)
In addition to its own laboratory facilities, the faculty and students of the Program have access to the UFRPE Research Support Center (CENAPESQ). This facility holds equipment as liquid chromatography (HPLC), mass spectrometer, lyophilizers, scanning electron microscope coupled with microanalysis (SEM-EDS), among others, that complement the analytical capabilities for the development of our dissertations and theses.
