Learn More Acids
Acids are defined as substances that have a sour taste, a low pH (<7), cause litmus paper to turn red, and react with bases, yielding water and ionic compounds called salts. Strong inorganic (also called mineral) acids can dissolve metals such as zinc and iron, producing hydrogen gas in the process.
Control of the process steps and wafer environment to meet the daily challenges of routine wafer compliance requires the use of many diverse characterization techniques, including many employing analytical instrumentation.
Both ICP-OES and ICP-MS are widely used for trace element analysis . Choosing between ICP-OES or ICP-MS depends on the following parameters: Join our Community, Instrument performance Characteristics of the environmental sample Regulatory requirements, ICP-MS Main advantages ICP-MS is becoming a...
Learn More Trace Elemental Analysis (TEA) Information
Chemical elements constitute all of the ordinary matter in the universe. Of the 118 elements that have been identified, 94 are found naturally on Earth, having either stable or unstable isotopes. Because all matter differs in its elemental composition, it also differs in its chemical properties.
Learn More ICP-OES Sample Preparation
A variety of sample types can be analyzed by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), including aqueous and organic liquid and solid samples. These have to be brought into a state that theICP-OES instrument as a whole can process for elemental analysis.
Learn More Metal Analysis
Environmental metals testing is very common for analysis of drinking water, wastewater, solid waste, soils and compost due to metal toxicity and regulations. With the advanced technologies today, in one elemental analysis run, multiple metals are often analyzed in multiple samples.
Learn More Oil & Gas Testing Information
Testing is essential for high-quality oil and gas production during upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas processes. Testing for composition, purity, and contaminants are required for seamless production, trading, and distribution.
Learn More Drinking Water Analysis
Drinking water requires testing for over 90 possible contaminants according to U.S. EPA regulations in the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Using approved analytical methods, scientists in municipal water facilities and contract labs routinely monitor for pollutants such as inorganic anions and...
Learn More Water Analysis
For water quality monitoring, we offer multiple techniques for the analysis of drinking water, surface water, groundwater, and wastewater to comply with legislation and regulations. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and the Clean Water Act (CWA) are the two important environmental laws governing...

Learn More Soil Contaminant Analysis
Soil analysis is routine testing for both research and farm communities. Understanding the nutrient components in soil as well as testing biosolids (often used as fertilizers) and plants are necessary in order to determine how much fertilizer is needed.
Learn More Geochemistry and Geology
Natural variation in the relative abundances of elements and isotopes of various elements can be used as a tool to explain the mechanisms behind geological systems on Earth and in the universe. These variations provide insights into a variety of processes, like the formation and evolution of the...
Learn More Hydraulic Fracturing
As hydraulic fracturing or fracking has burgeoned, so have speculations about itsenvironmental impact. Both citizens and government officials have questioned whether fracking couldcompromise our drinking water sources.
Standards are documents that provide requirements, specifications, and guidelines for consistent testing and analysis. Oil and gas industry standards simplify testing procedures, assure accuracy, and minimize the cost of petroleum and petroleum product transactions, both nationally and...
Learn More Cation Analysis
Common cations in group I and II of the periodic table (dissolved alkali and alkaline earth metals) are not on the National Primary or Secondary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWR or NSDWR) list. However, these cations are routinely monitored in public water systems in the US and some are regulated...
