Pontifical Catholic University-Mayagüez Selects MeasureNet
November 5, 2007
The density of MeasureNet in Puerto Rico continues to increase! The newest member of the MeasureNet user community is Pontifical Catholic University of Mayagüez. Its sister institution, the Pontifical Catholic University in Ponce was the first university on the island to adopt MeasureNet for laboratory electronic data acquisition in 2003. Other recent MeasureNet installations on the island include University of Puerto Rico–Ponce and Interamerican University–Ponce.
The city of Mayagüez lies on the western coast of Puerto Rico and is known as the "Ciudad de las Aguas Puras" (City of Pure Waters). It boasts 92,000 inhabitants and is a former center of tuna canning and textiles. It is also known for its impressive colonial style town center and cathedral.
The Mayagüez Pontifical Catholic University installation will include digital balances, GC functionality, shared 1-nm resolution UV-VIS spectroscopy, electrochemistry probeware, and a set of multi-function colorimeters in addition to temperature, pressure, pH. and voltage, probeware. While small relative to others on the island, the university's service-structured chemistry program is high in enthusiasm and determination to provide a modern curricular and instrumentation experience that prepares students for future research and private sector science-related employment.
"MeasureNet is pleased to have Pontifical Catholic University of Mayagüez join the user community," says MeasureNet President Robert Voorhees. "It has dedicated itself to providing the most advanced teaching lab experience available through the installation of MeasureNet and associated curricular changes. We would like to thank Professor Hector Cancel and his colleagues for their efforts."
