College of Chemistry Microanalytical FacilityBerkeley RIC
The Microanalytical Facility provides Elemental Analysis. Elemental analysis is a process where a sample of the some material (e.g. soil, water ,polymers, minerals, chemical compounds) is analyze for their chemical composition. There are a several analytical instruments in the facility:
- Perkin Elmer CHNS 2400 series II analyzer . The detection limit for C,H,N and S is 0.2%.
- Thermo Fisher Flash Smart Elemental analyzer( C,H,N,S analysis) The detection limit 0.01%.
- Perkin Elmer ICP Optima 7000 DV Spectrometer ( for metals analysis) The detection limit 0.01ppm. Open access instrument.
