Inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) is an analytical technique that is used to identify the atomic composition of a particular sample. The technique makes use of the unique photophysical signals of each element to successfully detect the type and relative amount of each element within the complexity of a compound.
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is a type of mass spectrometry that uses an inductively coupled plasma to ionize the sample. It atomizes the sample and creates atomic and small polyatomic ions, which are then detected. It is known and used for its ability to detect metals and several non-metals in liquid samples at very low concentrations. Measures trace concentrations from complex extracts.
MP-AES consists of a microwave induced plasma interfaced to an atomic emission spectrophotometer (AES). It is used for simultaneous multi-analyte determination of major and minor elements. MPAES employs microwave energy to produce a plasma discharge using nitrogen supplied from ambient air, which eliminates the need for sourcing gases in remote locations.
The San++ Total Nitrogen & Total Phosphate analyser uses the well-known continuous flow analysis (CFA) principle, which is based on international standard regulations such as ISO. Complex manipulations such as distillation, in-line UV digestion, extraction, etc. are incorporated on the chemistry modules.
The Skalar PrimacsSN analyzer is designed to measure Total Nitrogen / Protein in a variety of solid and/or liquid samples using the DUMAS combustion technology. The DUMAS combustion technology offers an accurate, rapid, safe, economical and environmentally friendly method for Nitrogen / Protein determination.
Soxhlet extraction is an exhaustive extraction technique widely applied to analytes that are sufficiently thermally stable. The extraction solvent is continuously cycled though the matrix, by boiling and condensation, with the sample being collected in the hot solvent.
