Skidmore Analytical Interdisciplinary Laboratory (SAIL)

SAIL instruments

Our resources include both benchtop and portable instrumentation for elemental, ion, molecular and functional analysis. This range of capabilities allows for the study of a wide variety of materials from compounds synthesized in a laboratory to samples collected from the local environment. Some of our instrumentation has been used to nondestructively examine artifacts and art objects as well as living plants and insects.

In addition to the instrumentation in SAIL, several Skidmore faculty and students use the Skidmore Microsopy Imaging Center (SMIC), the Physics Machine Shop and additional instrumentation and equipment in the Chemistry Department.
