Advanced Characterisation Platform


The Advanced Characterization Platform (ACP) is a toolbox of cutting-edge capabilities, which NEXGENNA brings to bear on research challenges. The ACP includes state-of-the-art instrumentation supported by world-leading experts in battery characterisation. To get a better understanding of real-life batteries, the ACP emphasises in-situ and operando capabilities.  

The ACP is supported by the NEXGENNA ULab page, where you can search our facilities and find out who to contact. Its aims are to:

  • To connect experts.
  • To raise awareness of facilities, equipment, and expertise.
  • To ease collaboration.
  • To lower barriers to accessing facilities.
  • To spread best practice.


ULab is a web-based laboratory and equipment management system. It enables facilities to catalogue their key laboratory equipment. ULab operates from the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow.

ULab organises equipment by Institution > Facility > Lab > Equipment. NEXGENNA is a cross institutional facility with equipment located across the UK.
