  1. 1. ABU @ 50FACILITIES IN THE MULTI-USERSCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY (MUSRL) AHMADU BELLO UNIVERSITY, ZARIA PRESENTED BY: SILAS EKWURIBE (HND,MNIST,ICCON) (LABORATORY MANAGER, MUSRL)
  2. 2. LOCATION OF MUSRLMULTI-USER SCIENCE RESEARCHLABORATORY (MUSRL) ISSITUATED AT THE DEPARTMENTOF CHEMISTRY. AHMADU BELLOUNIVERSITY ZARIA.
  3. 3. • VISION: To promote inter-disciplinary research using state of the art equipment in generating qualitative and reliable results comparable with that of any world class laboratory.• MISSION: To produce a new breed of highly skilled scientists and establish standards which do not only serve as a template for other Laboratories in Nigeria but equally meet International Standards.
  4. 4. INFRASTRUCTURES OF MUSRL • THE MULTI-USER SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY (MUSRL), AHMADU BELLO UNIVERSITY CONT’D• THE LABORATORY IS A STORY BUILDING DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE THE FOLLOWING:• GROUND FLOOR:• ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE• SECRETARY’S OFFICE• LABORATORY STORE• WORK BENCH ACCOMODATING EQUIPMENT• CENTRAL AREA SUITABLE FOR WORKSHOPS, GROUP DISCUSSIONS AND SEMINAR PRESENTATIONS• FIRST FLOOR:• SIX ROOMS TO ACCOMMODATE SPECIAL EQUIPMENTS• CENTRAL AREA SUITABLE FOR WORKSHOPS, GROUP DISCUSSIONS AND SEMENAR PRESENTATIONS
  5. 5. INFRASTRUCTURES OF MUSRL CONT’D ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE SECRETARY’S OFFICELABORATORY WORK SPACE AND SOME EQUIPMENTS.THE CENTRALSPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS
  6. 6. INFRASTRUCTURES OF MUSRL CONT’D DUST CONTROLTHE WINDOWS AND DOORS OF THEMUSRL ARE DESIGNED TO BE DUSTTIGHT. BAIONAIRE PARTICULATE AIR FILTER Dust is a notable enemy to the production of accurate laboratory results therefore each of our eight (8) instrument rooms is equipped withEQUIPMENT ROOMS OFFICES a particulate air filter. All vents andAND THE CENTRAL SPACE FOR windows are designed to be dust-WORKSHOPS FULLY tight.
  7. 7. INFRASTRUCTURES OF MUSRL CONT’D POWER SUPPLY100KVA & 5KVA GENERATORS ON THE STANDBY INCASE OFPOWER FAILURE
  8. 8. INFRASTRUCTURES OF MUSRL CONT’D GAS CYLINDER CAGEFOR SAFETY REASONS, ALL TOXIC, FLAMABLE, IRRITANT AND POISONOUS GAS CYLINDERS ARE HOUSED IN ACAGE OUTSIDE THE LABORATORY AND PIPED TO THE POINTS WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED IN THE ROOMS
  9. 9. INFRASTRUCTURES OF MUSRL CONT’D SAFETY GADJETSPREMIER SX ALARM CONTROL Fire extinguishers and fireSYSTEM & SMOKE DETECTOR. blankets available at strategicInstalled to detect any fire locations in the laboratory, incaseoutbreak of fire outbreak
  10. 10. EQUIPMENT IN THE MULTI-USER SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY (MUSRL)SPECIAL FEATURES: equipped with graphite furnace, vapor generator assembly( VGA)auto sampler & assorted multi-element lamps.LAMPS & STANDARDS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE FOLL0WING ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS:aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, beryllium, bismuth ,boron, chromium, cadmium,calcium, cobalt, copper, gold, iron, lead, lithium, magnesium, mercury, molybdenum,nickel, palladium, platinum, potassium, silicon, silver, selenium, sodium, titanium,tungsten, tin, vanadium, zinc.
  11. 11. DIFFERENTIAL SCANNING CALORIMETER (DSC)One of the latest addition to the Lab is the DSC. It is used todetermine the temperature and heat of transformation in both liquidand solid materials: measures physical properties like compatibility,purity, crystallization, heat capacity and evaporation. It also assessesstability and the kinetic profile of materials and is useful for food ,pharmaceutical and material sciences.
  12. 12. EQUIPMENT IN THE MULTI-USER SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY (MUSRL) CONT,D Oxford XRF (X-SUPREME) SUPPORTING EQUIPMENT FOR THE XRFAnalysis both solid and liquid samples,Our X-Ray fluorescence is employed inInvestigations that involve bulk chemicalanalyses of major and trace elements like Si, Ti, Retsch RS200 milling machine, jawAl, Fe, Mn, Mg, Ca, Na, K, P Ba, Ce, Co, Cr, Cu, Ga, crusher, MM400, Specac pressLa, Nb, Ni, Rb, Sc, Sr, Rh, U, V, Y, Zr, Zn) in rock machine for solid sampleand sediment - preparation, for the XRF
  13. 13. AMINO ACID ANALYSZER (SYCAM)The automated Amino Acid Analyzer isemployed in;the analysis of nutritive values of food stuffs,agricultural productsand Physiological Fluids in medical research.
  14. 14. THE CHNS-O ELEMENTAL ANALYSER This equipment is used for the determination of the composition of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen components of organic samples. AREA OF APPLICATION:  petrochemical industry  geological industry  agricultural industry  Pure Organic Samples  Synthetic Mixtures  Organometallic  Plastic & Polymer Rubber  Coal & Coke.  Soils and Sediments  Plants; Compost & Leaves  Fertilizers industry  Animal Feed
  15. 15. OLYMPUS BX 41 RESEARCH MICROSCOPEThis microscope allows for clearer, brighter, beautifullycontrasted images. It also has multiple condensers to allow foran array of contrast techniques, including bright field, darkfield, differential interference contrast (DIC), polarization, andphase contrast. It has a wide-range of applications and isespecially suited for clinical research.
