Jul 9, 2019
Proper sampling procedure as well as the use of an appropriate sampling container has a major impact on the quality of analysis result. Suitable container also facilitates safe and simple sample handling. Some compounds in collected samples may be prone to changes due to physical, chemical and biological reactions. These changes may start immediately after sampling and last until the time of analysis. All water samples are at the greatest risk of developing processes that have a negative... Read more »

Determination of elemental composition of substances by Scanning Electronic Microscope (SEM/EDS)

Feb 11, 2019
The new acquired TESCAN VEGA 3 scanning electron microscope (SEM) coupled with an energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS) allows identification of fibers and determination of the number of asbestos fibers in the air – (see news from 10. January 2019), and moreover its configuration is also suitable for observing and analyzing the structure of material surfaces. Using the EDS detector, it is possible to determine semi-quantitative elemental composition of the observed sample or particle. As... Read more »

Scanning electronic microscope (SEM) for the determination of asbestos

Jan 10, 2019
ALS Czech Republic's Laboratories  invested in the acquisition of a TESCAN VEGA 3 scanning electron microscope (SEM) last year.
