Analysis and measurement of molecular weight in the laboratory

Your needs: determine the size and weight of a molecule

In the field of chemical analysis and characterization, knowledge of molecular weight is a key element in identifying the elemental composition of a product.  

Each atom has specific properties such as density, melting or boiling temperature, but it is through their unique molecular weight that we seek to identify and characterize them.

Molecular weight analysis and knowledge of the chemical elements that make up your products will allow you to

  • Validate their compliance with your specifications and regulatory standards
  • Adapt your production processes to avoid the risks of failure
  • Study the compatibility of a chemical product with its environment

Different data between the theoretical molecular weight and the measured molecular weight can be a factor of possible non-conformity or failure.

Our solutions: to offer molecular weight analysis techniques specific to your needs and to provide you with fast and reliable results
