Welcome to the UC Davis Analytical Lab



The UC Davis Analytical Laboratory is a core support facility of the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. The laboratory performs analyses on selected chemical constituents of soil, plant, water and waste water, and feed in support of agricultural and environmental research and UC Cooperative Extension activities.

Analytical Laboratory clients are University of California academics, other educational institutions, government agencies, and research-based businesses.

In addition to analytical services, the Laboratory provides project assistance in the areas of analytical, agricultural and environmental chemistry. The Laboratory has an educational role, providing training to students and researchers in the operation of a number of analytical methods and instruments.

February 1, 2012  — OLIVE OIL TESTING

The UC Davis Analytical Laboratory is now collaborating with the UC Davis Olive Center to provide high quality, reliable testing of olive oil.  We are currently accepting olive oil samples for sensory evaluation. This testing is performed by the UC Davis Olive Oil Taste Panel. In the near future, the Laboratory will begin chemistry testing of olive oil.

For more information please access the new Olive Oil tab on our website.
