Analytical lab instruments encompass a wide range of instrumentation whose principle purpose is to qualitatively and quantitatively analyze samples; the chemical makeup of a sample and the quantity of each component within a sample. The wide range of available equipment also allows for a wide range of testing methods and their respective applications.
Analytical Testing Applications:
Analytical laboratory instruments are used in a variety of fields, given their cross-discipline compatibility to analyze samples.
Analytical lab instruments are used not only in the laboratory environment, but also on the field. They include, but are not limited to the following areas:
- Analytical Chemistry
- Clinical Analysis
- Environmental Testing
- Food & Beverage Analysis
- Forensic Analysis
- Life Science Research (e.g. metabolomics, genomics, proteomics)
- Materials Characterization and Research
- Petrochemical Testing
- Pharmaceutical Analysis
- And more!
Range of Analytical Instrumentation:
Analytical lab instrumentation includes those used within spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electrochemical analysis, thermal analysis, separation analysis, microscopy, and the various hybrid technologies (e.g. GC-MS and HPLC-MS).
Examples of analytical instruments include mass spectrometers, chromatographs (e.g. GC and HPLC), titrators, spectrometers (e.g. AAS, X-ray, and fluorescence), particle size analyzers, rheometers, elemental analyzers (e.g. salt analyzers, CHN analyzers), thermal analyzers, and more.
What to consider when choosing analytical instrument solutions for your laboratory:
Because analytical lab instruments vary in available analysis, it is important to identify key information that must be obtained from your lab analysis. Once you have identified the appropriate type of instrument for your analytical needs, the following factors are key considerations as you evaluate various offerings from available manufacturers: accuracy, sensitivity, resolution, signal/noise, bench-top dimensions, portability, and multi-parameter testing capabilities.
