The UW-Madison Department of Chemistry Shops serve the researchers in our department and the broader UW-Madison community. We offer three major services:
- Design and construct custom instrumentation and accessories for research.
- Support student and faculty efforts through offerings of inventory, tools, training, and workspaces.
- Repair laboratory instruments, appliances, and accessories.
We are divided into four separate shops, each focused on a particular specialty:
- Electronics Shop
- Glass Shop
- Machine Shop
- Pump Shop
Often a particular job will involve multiple shops, in which case any staff member is an appropriate point-of-contact to get started.
We focus on supporting UW-Madison research and teaching efforts, and are generally not available for public or undergraduate work. We are happy to work with researchers outside of the Chemistry Department, time allowing.
