About WASC

The Warwick Analytical Science Centre (WASC) has its origins in a £3.6M Science and Innovation award in 2008 by EPSRC (EP/F034210/1), with a recent £2M award (EP/P030572/1, 2017-18) having been used to refresh for multi-user equipment. The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Analytical Science (EP/L015307/1, 2014-23) has been invaluable in linking up experimental analytical sciences research at Warwick, and for strengthening interaction with key external partners, notably, in the pharmaceutical (AstraZeneca), additives (Lubrizol) and agrochemical (Syngenta) sectors.

A key aspect of high quality analytical science is high quality techniques, methodologies and instrumentation. Our Analytical Capabilities Guide summarizes some of the experimental techniques and instrumentation we have at Warwick.


The Warwick Centre for Analytical Science (W-CAS) was established in October 2008, with the goal of becoming a major national and international hub for research and training in the analytical sciences.

Interests encompass:

Development of a new techniques and instrumentation

  • Development of theory, simulation and statistical methods

  • Broad application of analytical science from the life sciences to the physical sciences, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary topics
