The new Savillex C400d PFA concentric nebulizer for ICP-MS combines the reliability of a low flow glass nebulizer with the chemical resistance and low elemental background of a PFA concentric nebulizer.
Sample matrices with high organic content have created a significant challenge for sample preparation methods.
This application note introduces an Application Package for quantitative analysis of additive elements in polymer.
This application note describes the capability of the Teledyne Leeman Lab's Prodigy7 High-Dispersion ICP for performing analysis according to SW-846 Method 6010C.
Moxtek now has a full energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence detector solution with Moxtek's XPIN detectors and our new MXDPP-50 electronics.
Demonstration of the advantages of using the Orbis micro-XRF elemental analyzer rather than other analysis techniques to perform elemental analysis through a plastic barrier and/or at atmospheric pressure.
SciAps has developed a handheld analyzer based on laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS).
Molecular Spectroscopy
Raman microscopy is a high resolution imaging technique that has become widely used for the characterization of materials in terms of their chemical composition.
Polymer orientation of a blow-molded plastic was investigated using FTIR-ATR with polarization. By using a variable angle ATR accessory, changes in spectral features were observed at two different probing depths.
Low concentration natural methanol exists in most alcoholic beverages and usually causes no immediate health threat.
Infrared ATR spectroscopy has recently gained recognition as a viable technique for protein structural analysis due to its high information content, rapid sampling rate, and minimal sample preparation.
Raman spectroscopy is an excellent technique for the identification and characterization of fuels. With no requirement for sample preparation and the power to identify and quantify materials, Raman has many uses across a range of industries.
Raman microscopy has evolved into a common method for fast and nondestructive analysis of microscopic samples in forensic and R&D laboratories as well as for troubleshooting in the field of quality control.
Both Raman spectroscopy and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) are proving to be invaluable tools in the field of biomedical research and clinical diagnostics.
In life science research, detergents are primarily used in sample preparation to liberate cellular components through membrane disruption and to solubilize lipid-associated proteins.
