HMSTrust Analytical Laboratory



Overview of Services

Based at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) in Parkville, the HMSTrust Laboratory is an open access analytical laboratory which offers sophisticated physical and chemical characterisation techniques to complement research and overcome the challenges faced in modern drug development. Clients can either use our instrumentation or alternatively engage us to perform bespoke analytical services.

This laboratory is a not-for-profit facility and our fees have been set to create an affordable pathway for the development of new pharmaceutical, vaccine and diagnostic products, and at the same time provide exceptional training to the next generation of pharmaceutical scientists.

The foundation of the HMSTrust Laboratory was made possible through a generous grant of $1.2 million provided by the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, along with funds provided by Monash University and in-kind support from our equipment suppliers Shimadzu and Perkin Elmer.


Our instruments: UHPLC, LCMS, FTIR, Raman, XRD, GCMS, DSC, TGA, MALDI, Karl Fischer
