  • Six reasons to get excited about the new LAB-X5000 benchtop XRF

    With handheld devices making it easier to analyse samples on the move, it’s easy to overlook the reliability, flexibility and sheer power of desktop XRF analysers. For 45 years, LAB-X has been a leading name among lab instruments around the world, and the latest in this tried and tested line of products has just been launched. Our XRF expert Matt Kreiner looks at why people are getting ...

  • Nitrate Analysis of Water Samples Using a Benchtop UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

    Nitrogen is naturally found in groundwater and surface water in the form of nitrate, nitrite, or ammonium. The EPA has established a maximum contaminant level of nitrate-nitrogen in potable water of 10ppm. This application presents results of UV-Vis analysis of nitrate concentrations in drinking water, ground water, and industrial wastewater, showing that the manual colorimetric method is ...
