What Makes NSL Analytical Different

We know from experience the importance of adhering to strict procedures at each step. Proper wet chemistry can make or break the results down the road, and we have dedicated scientists for our wet chemistry offering.

Overall, NSL Analytical’s wet chemistry process plays a crucial role in chemical analysis, offering flexibility, precision, and depth of understanding essential for both research and confidence in your product.

Critical Chemistry Techniques

To properly test samples through instruments, scientists place a solid sample into a container and add a liquid that can break down the solid. Common solvents include water, acids, or other specific chemicals depending on what they’re trying to test.

The proper combination of acid and digestion techniques are used to dissolve even the toughest of materials for ICP analysis. At NSL, we use hotplates, block digesters, Bunsen burners, closed vessel microwave digestions, muffle furnaces and alkali flux fusions for digestions.

Some of the common wet chemistry techniques we use include:

  • Gravimetric – for quantification of silicon, aluminum, nickel, rhenium, gold and silver
  • Titrimetric – for boron and chromium
  • Colorimetric – for phosphorous and Cr +6
  • “Referee” to validate accuracy of results from traditional instrumentation testing
