The Organic Chemical Metrology Program exists within the Chemical Sciences Division, MML, which is located at the Hollings Marine Laboratory in Charleston, SC.
The organic analytical facility, located on the second floor of the Hollings Marine Laboratory, consists of two laboratories with a combined area of approximately 215 m2. These two laboratories provide the space and instrumentation to achieve two main functions for NIST: (1) the determination of organic pollutants in reference materials and samples from the marine environment and (2) the assessment of protein composition and structure in reference materials and biological samples. An array of instrumentation is available to scientists working in the NIST organic analytical facility. Sample processing equipment includes:
Instrumentation specifically for analysis includes:
