About Us

The Pacific Centre for Isotopic and Geochemical Research is a research group-based facility where scientists and their students can exploit the synergy of a unique grouping of personnel, expertise, and analytical instruments. The combination of eleven mass spectrometers, together with sample preparation laboratories and the research and support teams, makes this facility critical to the research projects of numerous students, researchers, and international scientists.

The primary goals of PCIGR are to foster innovative research and training by providing an integrated analytical facility with a truly multidisciplinary background, to attract visiting researchers from Canadian and international scientific communities, and to provide high-quality analytical services to the community at large.
