Welcome to ANALEST

ANALEST serves as a multi-user instrumentation facility for researchers and courses at UofT and for outside users seeking access to state-of-the-art instrumentation. Our facility has been jointly developed by the University of Toronto and the Perkin Elmer Corporation.

  • Research

    Each of our instruments is available for use by university and industry students and scientists following training if required. Specific training sessions are held throughout the year in the ANALEST facility. University courses are also encouraged to use the facility.

  • Teaching

    ANALEST features a large teaching laboratory with wet benches, fume hoods and other preparatory and analytical equipment. Several courses run througout the year from multiple departments.


The PerkinElmer Spectrum One FTIR has been replaced with a new PerkinElmer Spectrum Two FTIR, with a diamond ATR accessory. It is available for use with training. Users of the old PE FTIR will require a quick overview of the new software.

We now have a Jasco J-710 circular dichroism spectrophotometer available for use!
