The Advanced Analysis Centre (AAC) at the University of Guelph is a group of research laboratories housed in the University’s Science Complex. The AAC spans an area of over 1000m2 and contains approximately $30 M of research equipment purchased with funds from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, Ontario Research Fund and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

The commissioning of the AAC represents a 15 year vision of the University to provide modern, centralized and highly serviced space for large-scale advanced analytical laboratories including state-of-the-art Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry, Electron Microscopy, Advanced Light Microscopy, Genomics and a state-of-the-art plant growth facility. The AAC provides an unequalled range of capabilities for research and advanced education at the interface of the physical and biological sciences.

Mission Statement

The mission of the AAC is to provide researchers access to state-of-the-art analysis equipment that is usually beyond the resource capability of a single-grant holder. The objective of the AAC is to foster science and scientific collaborations at the highest level.
