Chemical analysis

An argon plasma torch

We use specialist techniques to determine the concentrations of elements and chemical species in a wide range of samples.

Inductively coupled plasma (ICP) techniques

These techniques use inductively coupled plasma to ionise samples.

CHNS elemental analysis

In CHNS elemental analysis solids are combusted and the resulting oxides of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen are analysed chromatographically.

Ion chromatography

Determination of ions is performed using conductivity, UV-visible spectrometry or electrochemical detectors. 

Vibrational spectroscopy

Molecular bonds are used to identify molecules by examining their response to different electromagnetic wavelengths using FTIR and UV-VIS spectroscopy.
