Brominated Flame Retardants (BFRs) Brominated Flame Retardants (BFRs), such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) have become global environmental contaminants because of their widespread use in numerous household and commercial products.
Mass Spectrometry Analysis
Leeder offers a wide range of analytical services. The techniques are excellent for the identification and quantitation Mass Spectrometry of very small very volatile compounds all the way up to large molecular weight materials.
Leeder Analytical’s expert team conduct Mass Spectrometry testing and analysis on a wide range of sample types – and the results we generate are able to determine the elemental composition, molecular weight and isotopic signature of a specific compound.
From this, we’re able to elucidate the chemical identity or structure of molecules and other chemical compounds, providing us with knowledge of the materials testing – and assisting to identify potentially unknown impurities within. We offer both Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry and also Ultra High-Resolution Mass Spectroscopy.
Applications of GC/MS (Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry)
Leeder Analytical uses Mass Spectrometry across a wide variety of analytical circumstances, it is often applied to complex chemical mixtures to identify the individual compounds within but can also be utilised in pure samples.
GC/MS is an incredibly useful tool for both qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis.
One of the core reasons Mass Spectrometry Analysis is such a helpful test in analytical chemistry is that It can identify unknown compounds as well as determine the chemical structure of a compound by observing and analysing its fragmentation.
Another important application of Mass Spectrometry testing is that it can actually quantify the levels of a chemical compound found within a test sample.
Who we work with?
Our NATA accredited laboratory conducts impurity identification, testing and material identification for product manufacturers, food manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, engineers, scientists, consultants and regulators (EPA) and government bodies.
These professionals choose to work with Leeder Analytical because we offer reliable and accurate testing, as well as extract key insights from the scientific findings.
Some of the organisations we’ve worked with for oil testing and analysis includes:
They choose Leeder Analytical because they’re able to trust in the speed, effectiveness and efficiency of our processes, and importantly the accuracy of our results and interpretations.
