Sample Preparation Laboratory


High quality solid samples with minmal contamination or water contents are a pre-requisite for reliable and meaningfull analysis using X-ray Fluorescence techniques. The Centre has the following facilities for sample preparation :
  • Freezer Dryer
    The scientific principle in freeze-drying is sublimation, the conversion of a solid(ice) directly into its gaseous form(water vapour). It results in the extraction of the water content preserving the original elemental composition.

  • Pelletiser
    This allows us to forms pellets from a wide range of materials

  • Vacuum Filtration
