Organic Geochemistry Laboratory (OG Lab)

The Organic Geochemistry Laboratory (OG Lab) at CU Boulder is a shared analytical facility for multidisciplinary and collaborative research in fields as diverse as biogeochemistry, geobiology, astrobiology, environmental microbiology, paleoceanography, paleoclimatology, and energy, among others. Three research groups comprise our lab:

The OG Lab focuses on the extraction, purification, separation, and chemical and isotopic characterization of organic molecules extracted from a wide array of environmental and culture samples. Our state-of-the-art analytical facility, housed in the new Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex/Laboratories (SEEC/SEEL), began its operation in Summer 2016 and was specifically designed for research operations in organic geochemistry and compound-specific isotope ratio mass spectrometry (see facilities tab).
