Laboratory elemental analyses

Your needs: to determine the elemental composition of your substance or product

Elemental analysis consists of determining the atomic proportions of chemical element present in the composition of a substance or of a product. Chemical elements detected by elemental analysis fall into several categories :

  • Organic elements, made up primarily of carbon (as well as Nitrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen, Sulfur and Phosphorus)
  • Metallic alloys, mixtures of various metallic elements
  • Heavy metals (Mercury, Lead, etc.)

Each category can be analyzed using specific elemental analysis techniques, making it possible to deconstruct a substance’s structure with the aim of identifying and quantifying elements present in said substance.

These elemental analyses will allow you to ensure that your products comply with relevant standards and regulations.
