Emerging Materials Analysis
Mercury Infiltration Porosimetry (MIP)
Low Angle Laser Light Scattering (LALLS)
Key Technology #1Inductively Coupled Plasma
- Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS)
ICP-MS is a powerful technique for quantifying trace elements in solids and liquids. It combines low detection limits and high selectivity to deliver information on over 60 elements in the periodic table.
Key Technology #2Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)
GC-MS is the gold standard for trace materials analysis especially for organic molecules, small or large. When used for industries, GC-MS can be used in various industries including GMP regulated ones such as pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food.
Key Technology #3Principal Component Analysis Using
Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass
Spectrometry (PCA-ToF SIMS)
PCA is an orthogonal transformation to convert a set of observations of possibly correlated variables into principal components. The PCA-ToF SIMS can be widely used for materials identification or for mapping (polymers, organics, or bio-materials}.
Key Technology #4Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS)/Raman Microscope
Raman is a method of probing the chemical bonding in samples through inelastic light scattering. This can lead to the detection of sugar in food, trace chemicals on a surface and even to tracking compositional changes after heat treatments.
Key Technology #5Custom Synthesis:
Technical consultation is available for a variety of polymers, peptides, batteries and thin films. In addition to providing analytical services, Outermost Technology can also coordinate materials development projects.
