The Anton Paar SAXSess is a small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) instrument that can be used to analyse nanostructures present in all different kinds of samples, from liquids (eg, colloids, protein solutions) to solids (eg, polymer films, nanocomposites). It adds precision to scientific investigation and reliability to industrial analysis.
The Micromeritics AutoChem 2920 automated catalyst characterisation system is a fully automated chemisorption analyser that enables a wide array of studies of chemical adsorption and temperature-programmed reactions. It can acquire information about the physical properties of the catalyst, catalyst support or other materials, and can determine catalytic properties such as percentage of metal dispersion, active metal surface area, acid strength, surface acidity, distribution of strength of active sites, BET surface area and more.
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.
The Assist is an automated standalone accessory that is synchronised with the spectrometer and autosampler of an ICP-OES or ICP-MS instrument system. It consists of programmable dual syringe drives coordinated with an integrated valve system. The Assist delivers high levels of accuracy, stability and sample throughput by controlling the delivery of both sample and internal standard, eliminating the inaccuracies and pulsations caused by peristaltic pumps.
Reproducible HPLC separations require solvents to have a high degree of UV transmittance, low particle count, low acidity and alkalinity and a low level of evaporation residue. Merck’s LiChrosolv solvents meet these requirements; they are produced from specially selected raw materials and undergo a number of purification steps before final packaging.
The 6230 Accurate-Mass time-of-flight (TOF) LC/MS system can detect and identify compounds in amounts smaller than 2 pg, making it suitable for food safety, toxicology and other measurements where minute amounts of compounds must be identified.
