Analytical Techniques - Chemical Analysis

The combination of state-of-the-art instrumentation and expert analysts at Lucideon guarantees optimum problem solving capability using these techniques:

XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry) 
Major, minor and trace bulk elemental analysis of inorganic materials.

ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy) 
Trace analysis of inorganic materials, down to parts per million (ppm) or less.

ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry) 
Trace analysis of elements to identify individual masses and isotopic finger prints, with detection limits at or below parts per trillion (ppt).

IC (Ion Chromatography) 
Analysis of liquids / solutions for anions such as halides and sulphates.

GC (Gas Chromatography) 
Major organic compound analysis as gases or volatile components.

GC-MS (Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) 
Trace organic compound analysis as gases or volatile components.

GC-MS (Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) 
Trace organic compound analysis as gases or volatile components.

EPMA (Electron Probe Microanalysis) 
Fully quantitative elemental weight percent with micron spatial resolution, secondary & backscattered electron images.

SEM/EDX (Scanning Electron Microscopy/Energy Dispersive Analysis)
