Laboratory molecular analysis and characterization

Your needs: to identify the chemical composition of a molecule

In the field of chemical analysis and characterization, elemental analysis is an essential tool to be able to understand cellular and molecular mechanisms. This type of analysis consists of determining the proportions of atoms making up a chemical element and identifying their nature : this process is called molecular characterization.

Each substance has different specific properties such as density, melting temperature, boiling temperature as well as a unique molecular weight which is what is used to identify and characterize them.

Molecular characterization and good knowledge of the chemical elements that make up your product will allow you to:

  • Verify that your products comply with your scope statement and with standards
  • Adapt your production processes to prevent defects from appearing
  • Test the compatibility of a chemical substance with its environment

Depending on the nature of chemical elements, the characterization techniques being used will be different and more or less complex. Therefore, support from a specialized laboratory equipped with a diverse analytical fleet will give you access to all the tools you will need to conduct your elemental analyses.
