What does TESLA do?

Check out: Agilent Case Study: University of Aberdeen



Laili, Zeni Rahmawati from Catalysis and Photocatalysis, Ken and Toon took part in the summer 2019 Graduation ceremony











RC-CNRC has created a new certified reference material for arsenic in baby rice (BARI-1), TESLA was among other participants involved in the certification. Beside total arsenic and arsenic species mercury, cadmium and lead are certified.

Congratulations to Laura for passing here VIVA. “Our Lara has now graduated with a PhD from Stockholm University 17 May 2019. Lara worked on mass balance approaches for organofluorines and especially PFAS (PI Jon Benskin) and was co-supervised by TESLA. Congratulations Lara!”





Congratulation to Ken. He passed his PhD viva in April.









10th Scottish Symposium on Environmental Analytical Chemistry in Glasgow (University of Glasgow, Wolfson Medical Building), 12 December 2018 TESLA participation:

Oral Presentation: Toon, Da, Ken, Daniel Poster Presentation: Sa'a, Nan, Martin Participation without presentation: Ahmed, Camilla, Xueying Attached is also a group photo that we took at the end of the symposium.

Among them Martin Mueller, who won the poster price for his work on sulphur compounds in garlic, onions and shallots. Congratulations
