Dr Emily Hilder from the University of Tasmania (UTAS) discussing her work on separation science with the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science (ACROSS).
Separation science involves taking complex samples -- something like blood - and then looking at all of the components of that sample and separating all of the components and then identifying what they are and how much of each component is present.
Dr Hilder discusses a portable instrument developed at the University of Tasmania, which is mostly used for looking at bomb markers, in counter-terrorism research. ACROSS (Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science) is recognised as being one of the centres of excellence in this area in the world.
