Analytical Methods

Modern analysis on an ultratrace scale requires more than just state-of-the-art technology, you also need the corresponding know-how of trained professionals. Our long-term experience in the field and high employee retention-rate allow us to utilize our specialists in a variety of areas. Our laboratory staff are capable of developing an understanding of the resulting measurement values in their individual field of responsibility as well as carrying out the initial plausibility tests.

In addition to the "classic" methods of analysis, such as titration, photometry, spectroscopy, and gravimetric analysis, at the GBA Group our standard technology also includes highly specialized technical devices, such as gas chromatography (GC), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a diverse array of detectors (FID, ECD, ELSD, PND, MS, MS/MS, UV, DAD, FLD etc.), and even membrane-introduction mass spectrometry (MIMS). The analytical methods are conducted according to DIN, EN, and ISO standards, technical guidelines, or in special cases, according to validated methods developed in-house. In our comprehensive DAkkS accreditation certificate, you can find the entire spectrum of our accredited methods. Furthermore, we offer you countless more analytical methods, so that our range of services can meet almost any kind of demand.
