We benefit from excellent research facilities. Our field capabilities include two marine research vessels and SCUBA, and we have pioneered the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for research in terrestrial landscapes in NZ. Major laboratory equipment includes aquaculture simulators and marine aquaria; analytical suite (AA, ICP, HPLC, GC, GC-MS, LC-MS, FTIR), microscopy suite (atomic-force, laser-confocal, Raman, SEM and TEM), plus high-throughput sequencing and real-time PCR platforms (illumina, Roche).AENZ is part of the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences at Auckland University of Technology
