Galson Laboratories Adds New Technology
East Syracuse, NY - As part of an ongoing effort to meet customer needs, Galson Laboratories recently announced the following technology upgrades:
Metals Testing Expanded
With the addition of a ThermoElemental IRIS Intrepid trace analyzer for metals, Galson Laboratories has widely expanded its metal analysis capability. The new device is equipped to detect metals from 165 nanometers up to 1000 nanometers, including arsenic, lead, phosphorous, strontium, and lithium, and can achieve the new lower pel for beryllium.
Mercury Analyzer Upgraded
In addition, a new Leeman Hydra AA Mercury Analyzer has been purchased for mercury analysis with upgraded technology and better company service support on the new instrument.
Crystalline Powders Identified
In early 2002, newly implemented software which utilizes The Powder Diffraction File™ will allow Galson Laboratories to identify unknown crystalline substances in samples received for X-ray diffraction analysis. The Powder Diffraction File™ (PDF) is a library of X-ray diffraction data that contains 136,895 patterns and provides chemical and structural information for each pattern. It is "the world's largest and most complete collection of X-ray powder diffraction patterns. It may be desirable for clients to know the identity of other compounds present in samples which have been submitted for silica analysis," says Denise MacDuff, supervisor of the X-ray diffraction section. "Now we will be able to provide that information to them."
