New Instrumentation And Equipment
Analytical instruments are used in a variety of fields, given their cross-discipline compatibility to analyse samples. Analytical instruments are used not only in the laboratory environment, but also on the field. They include, but are not limited to the following areas: Analytical Chemistry, Clinical Analysis, Environmental Testing, Food & Beverage Analysis, Forensic Analysis, Life Science Research (e.g. metabolomics, genomics, and proteomics), Materials Characterization and Research, Petrochemical Testing, Pharmaceutical Analysis and more. Analytical instrumentation includes those used within spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electrochemical analysis, thermal analysis, separation analysis, microscopy, and the various hybrid technologies (e.g. GC-MS and HPLC-MS). Examples of analytical instruments include mass spectrometers, chromatographs (e.g. GC and HPLC), titrators, spectrometers (e.g. AAS, X-ray, and fluorescence), particle size analysers, rheometers, elemental analysers (e.g. salt analysers, CHN analysers), and thermal analysers.
