Welcome to the Separation Science and Metabolomics Laboratory at Murdoch University, Perth.
The Murdoch University Separation Science and Metabolomics Laboratory (SSML) is a unique national resource for small molecule research. The Centre forms a key Western Australian Node of Metabolomics Australia, a federal initiative that supports life science research through infrastructure investments in platform technologies.
As a Core Facility, the SSML empowers researchers through access to mass spectrometry instruments and expertise. We have developed a comprehensive suite of in-house methodologies that support and enhance biomedical and clinical research, plant and agriculture sciences, food safety, environmental science and many more.
Pesticide Residue Testing
Our in-house pesticide residue testing methodologies have been thoroughly validated for the detection of residues in grain, food, plant material and biofluids including blood, urine and breast milk.
The laboratory was accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities for ISO/IEC 17025 Chemical Testing in 2012. We are now working towards accreditation for Metabolomics.
The SSML has two separate facilities on campus for conducting research, development and training. Contact us for a tour of the flagship Advanced Mass Spectrometry Facility which showcase some of WA’s most sophisticated infrastructure and research inititatives.
