Chemistry grant funds purchase of new lab equipment

Matthew Stultz Apr 19, 2021

Waynesburg University’s Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science recently received a $3,000 grant from the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).

The grant, which has been awarded to Waynesburg for nearly a decade now, helps to maintain laboratory equipment and provide other necessary upgrades to instrumentation.

This year’s funds will be used to purchase new balances for the chemistry and organic chemistry labs in the Paul R. Stewart Science Hall.

“We are excited that the SACP is able and willing to provide these funds to aid our undergraduate curriculum,” said Dr. Bradley Davis, assistant professor of chemistry.

Ryan Sullivan, a freshman forensic chemistry major, demonstrates the use of a new balance in the general chemistry lab.

Waynesburg University is one of only four schools that have traditionally received this award on an annual basis. The opportunity comes from Waynesburg’s involvement in the SACP, specifically student participation in the Student Affiliates of the SACP.

About the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh

The Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of analytical chemistry through science education. It was organized in 1942 by a group of chief chemists and research analysts to provide an interchange of ideas, develop solutions to problems in analytical chemistry and encourage sociability among practitioners of the same profession.
