Technology Forum
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has been used for real-world applications ranging from mining sample analysis to threat analysis to industrial process control. Participants in this Technology Forum are Benjamin W. Smith of the University of Florida, Andrzej Miziolek of the US Army Research Laboratory, and Steve Buckley of Photon Machines, Inc. MORE »
SAY GOODBYE to flammable and expensive gases.
SAY HELLO to the NEW Agilent 4100 MP-AES.
The Agilent 4100 Microwave Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometer is the most significant advancement in atomic spectroscopy in decades. It runs entirely on air, which means your lab can perform unattended multi-element analyses while eliminating flammable and expensive gases. Watch this video to learn more about the Agilent 4100 MP-AES.

Prodigy-H for the Analysis of Halogens
Prodigy-H enables you to quantify both halogen and metal content of samples simultaneously.Including all the capabilities of our Prodigy ICP Plus a “deep” UV sensitive detection system for unprecedented wavelength coverage (134 – 1100 nm). http://www.teledyneleemanlabs.com/products/icp/ advanced_capabilities/prodigy_h.asp

Do you need accurate sample composition determination?
Using the Volborth Dual Grinding Method the McCrone Micronising mill can be used for determination of the true or original elemental composition of a sample by subjecting it to two parallel grinding operations, using different grinding element materials.
Dual grinding is required for analyses of the very highest quality.
