The Microanalytical Laboratory was founded in 1964 to offer a rapid, accurate and reliable contract analysis service to the academic and industrial communities. Equipment includes:
CE440 Elemental Analyser
CE440 Elemental analyser for the analysis of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. The CE 440 is capable of analysing a wide range of samples quickly and reliably, including organics and pharmaceuticals, environmental samples, polymers, refractories, and volatile and air sensitive samples. Such applications are valuable in the plastics, petrochemicals, agriculture, food, and pyrotechnical industries.
An Oxygen Flask Combustion Unit, based on the Schöniger flask method, is used for the analysis of halogens and sulphur. This well-proven technique involves the combustion and subsequent analysis of a range of elements including chlorine, sulphur, and fluorine. A number of metals may also be analysed with this system.
