    Determination of heavy metals in food

    This analytical procedure is intended for measuring the content of the elements (cadmium, lead, arsenic, tin, chromium and mercury) in the samples of food products by atomic absorption spectrometry with electrothermal atomization using an “MGA-915M” Graphite Furnace AA Spectrometer.

    The method is based on measuring resonance radiation absorption that occurs when the radiation passes through a layer of atomic vapor in the electrically heated graphite furnace of the “MGA-915M” AA spectrometer. The concentration of the elements is determined from the integrated analytical signal and is calculated using a preset calibration graph. The samples of food products are digested prior to analysis in accordance with standard methods.

    Analytical and measuring instruments of chemical and petrochemical

    In the chemical field, ICP-AES is used for a broad range of analysis in order to manage trace amounts of hazardous metals in the manufacturing process, manage additive elements essential to the functionality of a product, and manage the environment of the entire factory. Therefore, it is desirable to have a robust, highly stable system able to reliably accept the injection of a broad variety of samples, regardless of the type of solvent (aqueous/organic) or the presence of matrices. It is also important to simplify processes and reduce costs, which enhances the productivity of daily quality control work.

    Analytical instruments for elemental analysis

    Elemental analysis is a generic term for a group of applications which deal with the analysis of a variety of materials (chemicals, liquids, polymers, waste material, etc.) for their elemental or isotopic properties. Typical examples of elemental analysis techniques where mass flow control plays a key role are Total Organic Carbon (TOC) or Total Organic Halides (TOX).

    EDXRF spectrometers for pharmaceutical industry

    The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most regulated industries. Contaminants in drug products are examined throughout the manufacturing process, since their presence affects drug stability, behaviour and toxicity. Therefore, regulatory bodies such as the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) strictly enforce continuous and ongoing analysis of organic or inorganic impurities from raw materials, excipients and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) through intermediates of drug products and packaging.

    Instruments and analyzers for outdoor material testing

    Weathering of materials is most often an irreversible process affecting the cosmetic properties or strength of materials. This aging process is mainly driven by UV radiation, Heat and reactive elements in the atmosphere, for example chemical contamination. The plastic fabric of the product can dry and therefore weakened. The solar load can overheat the products and change material properties irreversibly. A common method to test the deterioration of materials is to expose materials to sun light and environment. To be able to quantify the aging process, the parameters that affect the aging process must be measured.

  • Gas analysis & monitoring systems for water - natural sciences

    In nature, the chemical elements can be represented by more isotopes, or atoms of the same element, characterized by a different number of neutrons in the nucleus. When the proton / neutron ratio does not exceed that value likely to upset the balance of the atom, resulting in the phenomenon known as stabilization of radioactive decay, the isotope is called stable. That is, over time, will not tend to emit energy and sub-nuclear particles to gain energy stability, giving rise, at the end of the process, the daughter nucleus (a different element, characterized by stability energy).

  • Quantitative Analysis of Steel Using Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)

    For steel analysis, LIBS is ideal for rapid QC (quantitative analysis and detection of contaminants) for raw materials in production, and to check the elemental composition of finished products. LIBS also offers the ability to analyze slag samples that can lead to the recovery of precious metals lost in the steel production process.
