Chemical quantitation and identification

We have extensive equipment and expertise that are frequently accessed by research, public sector and commercial clients. We can offer a range of non-coupled and MS coupled techniques including

  • GC, GC-MS
  • ICP-MS and ICP-OES
  • LC-MS, LC-MS/MS and nano-LC-MS
  • Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
  • FTIR
  • HPLC and Diode Array HPLC

Structural analysis

Using our recently acquired NMR system, we can also provide structural analysis of molecules. This can be carried out by proton-NMR, carbon-13 NMR or phosphorus-31 NMR spectroscopy.

All analysis can be charged on a per sample or per hour of instrument time basis.
