Analytical Techniques

Concerning tasks of trace element analysis and element species analysis several most up-to-date detection methods – coupling technics – are available:

Element analysis

  • Atomic absorption spectrometry
  • Atomic emission spectrometry using ICP-AES
  • Mass spctrometry using ICP-MS (standard-, DRC-, KED-, high resolution sector field- mode)

Anion analysis

  • Ion chromatography (IC)
  • „segmented flow analysis systems " (SFAS)

Elemental analysis (C, N)

  • combination of combustion and chromatographic systems

Element species analysis

coupling techniques, e.g.

  •     HPLC-ICP-DRC-MS,
  •     CE- ICP-DRC-MS

For trace element- and element species analysis several most up-to-date detection methods – including coupling techniques – are available:
