Metallo-Tests - Laboratory of analyzes

Equipment

Metallo-Tests always uses the most advanced tools to ensure the best analysis. Here is a list of the main equipment of the laboratory.

GC-MS with EI detector and GC-MS with NCI detector + Headspace

Gas chromatography with MS allows to detect traces of chemicals in organic solvents as phthalates, fragrances, ...
Headspace allows to determine VOC (Volitile Organic Compounds) which could be degazed from dials, rubber, boxes, ...

Equipement: Shimadzu GC-MS QP2010 Ultra and Shimadzu GC-MS QP2010 Ultra + HS20
Accréditation: Yes
Secteurs d'activités: Medical, Packaging / display, Leather Goods, Jewelry, Watchmaking
 

Electron microscope field emission gun (FEG)

Very powerful, with a nanometer resolution, it allows :

- to accurately determine the chemical composition surfaces.

- to isolate foreign inclusions into metal surfaces and to determine the chemical composition of superficial contaminations.

- to establish a 3D surface profile (topology) to obtain accurate information about the finish quality.

In addition to its traditional functions, this new electronic microscope
is equipped :

- with a new BSD sensor centered in the gun for performing a 3D characterization on low surfaces (roughness) of less than one micron.

- with a new detector Inlens allowing to make surfaces cartography on weakly conductive materials.

- with a VP (variable pressure) mode which allows observation without impairing the surfaces of non-conductive elements.

These new scalable features will enable the team of Metallo-Tests to meet with your new challenges and open the field of possibilities!

UNRELEASED ! Metallo-Tests provides its industrial customers, with University or institutes for private and public researches who wish to undertake specific work, this jewel of technology (with personnel, training and advice).
