Nickel assay by X-ray spectrography

06 April, 2009 | Supplied by: XRF Scientific

A Thulium-based, higher precision X-ray analysis technique is suitable for assaying nickel in ore. Currently, production criteria is controlled using quantitative X-ray analysis with a chemical assay reference method (Wet Chemical DMG), which tests the ultimate purity of the nickel ore or concentrate. The current X-ray technique, however, has proven to have accuracy limitations resulting in the loss of potential revenue that can be realised from production. Moreover, the chemical DMG method is relatively expensive, complex and time consuming with the chemicals being dangerous to operators.

Handheld XRF

06 April, 2009 | Supplied by: Bruker Pty Ltd

The TracerturboSD handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instrument uses a silicon drift detector (SDD) for improved speed, sensitivity and resolution. Bruker’s XFlash SDD, previously available only in high-performance laboratory XRF instruments, now offers speed and analytical specificity when integrated into the handheld TracerturboSD.

GC septa

06 April, 2009 | Supplied by: Merck

Supelco moulded Thermogreen LB-2 GC septa are available in two versions, without and with an injection hole.

Chiral HPLC/SFC columns

06 April, 2009 | Supplied by: Phenomenex Australia

The Lux line of polysaccharide-based columns is suitable for the identification and resolution of enantiomers. Lux columns are offered with two chiral stationary phases (CSPs), both of which use coated derivatised cellulose as the chiral selector. The two phases combine to create a dependable screening set with a wide range of selectivity. The Lux line is based on chiral technology that Phenomenex acquired along with the company Sepaserve.

Flash chromatography system

09 February, 2009 | Supplied by:

Grace Davison Discovery Sciences is introducing the Reveleris flash chromatography system. The system saves time and minimises guesswork in purifications.

GC-ion trap MS

Automated force spectroscopy

01 January, 2009 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd

JPK Instruments has released its ForceRobot system to automate force spectroscopy.

Polarised FTIR measurements

01 January, 2009 | Supplied by: PerkinElmer Pty Ltd

PerkinElmer has released a Universal Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR) polarisation accessory, designed to offer users the benefits of combining infrared spectroscopy with a polariser. Polarised measurements provide additional information on the molecular structure of a sample, particularly the crystal or molecular orientation, and help in the accurate characterisation of materials.

UV microscope

01 January, 2009 | Supplied by: Meeco Holdings Pty Ltd

Rigaku has launched the Desktop Minstrel UV, a fully automated UV imaging and protein crystal monitoring system. The instrument uses UV fluorescence microscopy to successfully monitor crystal growth by distinguishing protein crystals from non-protein crystals, such as salt.
