Elemental Analysis

Elemental Analysis is a process where a sample of a compound is analyzed to determine its elemental composition. Micro Analysis has provided elemental analysis services for customers in a great number of industries, research, and academic organizations:

  • Fuel and oil, Biodiesel, Biofuels
  • Farming products, chemicals, residues, soil
  • Paint, Foam, Sealants
  • General Chemical and Specialty Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Cosmetic products
  • Food and Beverage
  • Milk compounds

Micro Analysis commonly performs Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Sulphur, halogene and halide analysis, Kjeldahl Nitrogen, inorganic analysis, trace metals, Antek and ICP-AES.


Elemental Analysis Methods

All of our methods of Elemental Analysis are based on mass. Samples are weighed on calibrated micro-balances and certified standards are used to calibrate the instruments and standardize methods. The empirical formula for a compound is a calculation of the elemental composition by mass.

Elemental Analyses Precisions

% CHN and %S:
Precision: +/- 0.30 % LOD: < 0.10%

% Oxygen:
Precision: +/- 0.30 % LOD: < 0.10%

% Sulfur and Halogens % Br, Cl, F and I:
Precision: +/- 0.30% LOD: < 0.10% (Iodine LOD <0.25%)

Kjeldahl Nitrogen (micro):
Precision and LOD vary based on N concentration and sample weight. Precision: +/- 0.020% LOD: < 0.020%

Trace Nitrogen and Sulfur (Antek 9000NS Analyzer):
RSD: 10% LOD: < 10 PPM

Inorganic Analysis (ICP):
RSD: 25% LOD: < 1 PPM

Testimonials
Elemental Analysis
by T.W., Ph.D., Philadelphia, PA

You have done an excellent job!

I have been sending samples to you for independent analysis which helped me confirm my interpretations. You have done an excellent job so far that I have now convinced [one of our resin suppliers] to use your laboratory for future elemental analysis.

5 stars!
