About the Analytical Laboratory Equipment

Liquid Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry Triple Quadrupole (LCMS QQQ)

LCMS is an effective technique for high resolution analysis of non-volatile organic analytes such as alkyl phenol ethoxylates and perflourinated chemicals (PFC’s). When optimised it can measure to extremely low detection limits, routinely parts per billion and in some cases parts per trillion.

Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry Triple Quadruple (GCMS QQQ)

The work-horse of the analytical laboratory, gas chromatography provides an extensive range of analytical processes to measure organic analytes and volatile chemistry (VOC’s). The triple quadrupole element increases sensitivity allowing for better resolution and lower detection limits. Examples of analyses include chlorinated phenols and phthalates.

Gas Chromatography – Electron Capture Detector (GCECD)

This is a highly specialised form of detection for gas chromatography which enables the analysis of halogenated organic chemicals. Chemicals containing halogens such as fluorine, chlorine and bromine are increasingly the focus of global regulation. Examples of regulated chemicals would include brominated flame retardants and short chain chlorinated paraffins.

Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICPMS).

Used exclusively for the analysis of inorganic chemicals, ICP provides excellent resolution of highly regulated metals such as lead, cadmium and nickel testing and for specific regulatory testing such as EN71-3.
