VOC (purge & trap) instruments are analytical tools used to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from samples and concentrate them for analysis in order to detect and quantify trace amounts of VOCs present, using GC instruments.
Automation, through the use of advanced technology and robotics, to streamline and optimize laboratory processes by increasing efficiency, reducing errors, and freeing up human time for more complex tasks.
Different nebulization techniques can improve detection limits, precision, and accuracy, while enhancing signal quality, minimizing spectral interferences, withstanding corrosive liquids, and enabling the introduction of low-volume samples.
Automated sample preparation is the process of using robotic systems to perform tasks such as sample handling, mixing, dilution, reducing manual labor and improving the reproducibility and efficiency of sample preparation workflows in laboratories.
A comparative study of UV-AOPs using sodium perborate (UV/NaBO3 AOP) and hydrogen peroxide (UV/H2O2 AOP) revealed similar efficacy in reducing 1,4-dioxane in wastewater. Despite cost differences, the solid state of NaBO3 offers convenience for remote operations, while adding acetic acid to UV/H2O2 AOP increased treatment efficiency by 5.7%.
A new article published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials demonstrates that Teledyne CETAC’s SimPrep autodilution system is used as a tool in the research of new solar energy technologies. A team of researchers from Switzerland, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands sought to gain insight into the lifecycle of lead-containing materials used in new solar cells.
Founded in 1999, Aemas initially operated as a laboratory specializing in challenging element analyses using techniques like ICP-OES and ICP-MS Spectroscopy. In 2005, a significant shift occurred when Aemas entered into a partnership with Teledyne Leeman Labs. This collaboration not only pivoted the company’s focus but also allowed the integration of hard-won knowledge and experience in element analysis spectroscopy into the sales of specialized spectroscopy instruments for performing element analyses.
Starting in 2005, Aemas took on the role of selling an array of spectroscopy instruments, including ICP-OES Spectroscopy devices, Hg analyzers, and DC-Arc spectrometers from Teledyne Leeman Labs. In 2010, Aemas expanded its portfolio by securing the representation of Spectral Systems from Germany. This added Electrothermal Vaporization (ETV) Spectroscopy to our range of services—a technique that can be coupled with ICP-OES or ICP-MS Spectroscopy, allowing for the sample to be evaporated and directly introduced into the plasma without the need for sample preparation.
Our demonstration and application laboratory is strategically situated at Everdenberg in Oosterhout. In this facility, we concentrate on developing applications for spectroscopy equipment from both our represented suppliers and those from suppliers we do not represent.
