Capabilities: Quantitative and
qualitative analysis, any sample size and type. Specializing in
water analysis, but also able to handle many other sample types.
From simple wet chemical analysis (titrations, gravimetric analysis) to
full instrumental analysis (GC-MS, HPLC, FTIR, AA), I can help find the
answers to your chemical problems.
