Geochemical Analysis

Applied geochemical analysis is of value to geologists, mining engineers, metallurgists, and geochemists and requires reliable instrumentation capable of accurate analysis in complex matrices. Whether looking for trace levels of precious metals, doing geochemical exploration on thousands of samples, or assaying concentrates or final product Shimadzu provides instrumentation that fits your needs.

Necessary tools for the geochemical analysis laboratory:

The analytical balance is essential for all analytical laboratories.

A UV-Visible spectrophotometer allows even impoverished laboratories to perform high quality chemical assays with very minimal investment.

The Total Organic Carbon Analyzer (TOC) accurately measures carbon in solid and liquid samples.

The Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer is one of the most powerful, reliable, and cost effective tools for elemental analysis available.

Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma (ICP) is a multi-element technique capable of measuring trace to major elements and semimetals with little interference.

X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) provides qualitative mineral identification in solid samples.

X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) provides rapid, non-destructive elemental analysis or rocks, minerals, concentrates, metals and ceramics with little or no sample preparation.

Gas Chromatography (GC) analyzes mine air for quality and safety.

Metals Industry

Metals are used in the manufacture and construction of cans, cars, buildings, bridges, aircraft, and much more. Shimadzu provides a range of products offering precise, high-speed testing and composition analysis to ensure your metals meet all applicable standards and regulations.
