Analytics lab marks grand opening at U of L

The University of Lethbridge is now home to a high-tech analytical lab. The privately owned Blue Sky Analytical Labs tests everything from water to cannabis.

The privately-operated lab which is located at the U of L, was developed in a mutually beneficial partnership with the University.  The Science Commons offers the company the infrastructure and resources required to operate all in one building.  The University benefits from financial revenues from the company.  Lethbridge Mayor Blaine Hyggen says it is important to have a lab of this kind in Lethbridge.

Blue Sky Analytical Labs was recognized by the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce as the 2021 New Business of the Year.  The central analytical facility cost over $2.5 million to build and contains over $10 million worth of testing equipment.
