PREPARATION OF THE PLACE FOR THE INSTALLATION OF EQUIPMENT IN THE RESEARCH LABORATORY OF THE FACULTY OF SCIENCES AND ENGINEERING OF UNESP DE TUPÃ.

Abstract

Recently, through a partnership between Company and University, professor Felipe André dos Santos from the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering - FCE, Tupã Campus, acquired a donation from the company Venturo Análise Ambiental with an Atomic Absorption Spectrometer - AAnalyst 100 (FAAS). This equipment, by absorbing the intensity of electromagnetic radiation from a primary radiation source, is capable of quantifying elements (metals, semi-metals and some non-metals) in a wide variety of samples, such as biological materials (tissues and fluids) ), environmental (waters, soils, sediments and plants), food, geological, technological, among others. It is estimated that demand from FCE professors for approximately 1,000 analyzes per month on this equipment, which these analyzes are currently carried out on other campuses or companies with distances of approximately 250 km from Tupã. The equipment will be installed at the FCE Multi-User Equipment Laboratory (LEMU), where it will be used to carry out various experiments to meet the varied research groups of the unit and other UNESP institutions, as well as other demands, whether from Universities and Research Institutes or Private Institutions. In this sense and in view of the need to install FAAS, the present project proposes the use of the Institutional Technical Reserve resources available from FAPESP for the preparation of the site for the installation of research equipment, provided for in the Norms for the Use of Technical Reserve Resources Granted by Fapesp in item 6.2 a). This action is crucial to the development of FCE research, as it will directly assist 17 professors from different areas who develop works related to speciation and / or monitoring of potentially toxic and toxic semi-metals or metals in samples of water, soil, sediments, animals aquatic and terrestrial and vegetable. Thus, we hope that the installation of FAAS equipment in the multiuser research equipment laboratory of the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering can provide lower research costs for FCE professors, increase the quality of work and reduce travel risks and research time.
