Analytical testing techniques are used by scientists and researchers all over the world to make interesting and groundbreaking discoveries. Here we roundup some of the most interesting and cool bits of news and research featuring analytical testing methods in action: 1. What Makes Dirty Laundry Stinky? Scientists Use New Analytical Technique to Find Out Have […]
For us in the analytical testing field, we’re often asked about the work that we do. We love talking about all the high-tech techniques and pieces of machinery we use. “We recently used headspace GC/MS to outgas an epoxy sample to determine whether there were any qualitative differences between that sample and another known sample.” […]
GC/MS Applications: Manufacturing Product quality is of paramount importance for all manufacturers. And GC/MS analysis from a materials testing lab can be an incredibly useful tool to ensure that quality. GC/MS analysis, or gas chromatography mass spectrometry, is a materials analysis technique that’s used to identify the precise composition of a sample and to quantify […]
All manufacturers aim to create the highest quality and safest products for their customers. Often times, analytical testing services from a materials testing lab are enlisted to make sure manufacturers are doing just that.
What is GC/MS analysis? GC/MS analysis is an analytical testing method that combines features of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify different substances within a liquid or volatile sample. GC/MS is commonly used to identify unknown samples, contaminants, or residual solvents. GC/MS analysis is an extremely versatile testing method that can also be used […]
When unknown contaminants appear on your products due to failures in manufacturing processes, there are techniques that can help you identify the cause of the issue. Materials analysis laboratories use materials characterization to analyze and reverse engineer unknown materials to discover their composition. In our last post, we brought up four issues and asked you […]
As an engineering or manufacturing lead for your business, you have enough to do without trying to troubleshoot a mysterious product failure. From staffing issues to inventory and manufacturing to fulfillment, a product failure due to contamination or unexpected out gassing in transit is the last thing you want to hear about. Luckily there materials […]
