Covering a wide range of lab equipment, analytical instruments can be typified as devices that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of specific samples. Physical, chemical, and molecular properties can all be evaluated using analytical instruments. Different applications for these types of devices include chemical analysis, clinical studies, and material science research.
The instrument type you need depends on the specific property you are trying to look for in a given sample. Some instruments can perform multiple types of analysis, but most focus on finding one specific attribute using very specific techniques. Before selecting your required lab equipment, you should consider your lab’s budget, physical space, materials needed, and traits you’ll be testing for. A few examples of useful analytical instruments that you can read more about can be found below.
Calorimetry measures the change in energy of an object or system by observing the heat transfer that occurs with its surroundings. This heat exchange may occur due to physical changes, chemical reactions, or even sudden phase changes in the object or systems being observed.
The process of observing a material to determine its elemental or isotopic composition is called elemental analysis. The substance that is being observed to identify and measure its chemical components is referred to as an analyte.
Scientists across many disciplines use mass spectrometry to identify unknown compounds, elucidate structures, and quantify components in a sample, whether it is solid, liquid, or gas. A mass spectrometer measures the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of molecules (and/or its fragments) and atoms.
Nitrogen evaporators are used in a wide range of industries to prepare samples before they are analyzed. These machines dry and concentrate samples, allowing for gas chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry to be performed on them. Samples are loaded into the machine and the nitrogen is applied to remove moisture from the sample.
Particle Analysis Device
Studying the properties of particles or powders can provide scientists with vital information about industrial processes that involve these samples. Though small in size, particle technology is extremely important in chemical engineering and material sciences. Particle technology looks to observe particles traveling in bulk.
In material sciences, heat is used in conjunction with other measurement techniques to determine the different properties of samples. The group of techniques that performs these measurements are referred to as thermal analyzers. Thermal analysis can also be described as the measurement of heat transfer through structured mediums.
Testing water purity is not only important for clean drinking water, but it also plays a big role in the pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and power industries. If bacteria and other unintended organic compounds are present in the water they can render the water useless or indicate that there is an issue with the filtration or storage system.
Lease Any Analytical Instrument That Suits Your Needs
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
