Pressed powder pellets for LA-ICP-MS, XRF, LIBS, EPMA, SIMS
From certified powders, own and customized materials
Extremely homogeneous and pure, produced following ISO-guidelines
By developing a completely new method, μstandards is able to produce powder-pressed tablets with grain sizes in the nanometer range as reference materials. These pellets are extremely homogeneous, without any binding agents, and matrix-matched, which makes them suitable for a variety of microanalytical techniques. The quality of our reference materials will promote the breakthrough of solid (micro) analytics, as we finally have homogeneous materials available for calibration and validation produced following ISO standards.Learn more
Trace element concentrations in ore minerals are an important consideration in exploration, ore beneficiation, recycling, and reservoir exploration.
The chemical composition of minerals, the Earth's building blocks, is of interest for both industry and science.
Element-concentrations of ultramafic rocks let us glimpse into the composition of the Earth's mantle and the crust-mantle-boundary.
Element-concentrations in mafic rocks give insight to the composition of oceanic crust, large igneous provinces or mafic volcanoes.
The composition of felsic rocks is of interest when studying the continental crust.
Trace element concentrations in (bio) carbonates are used as proxies in paleo-climate research (foraminifera, corals, pteropods, mussel shells, red algae, stalactites, etc.), serve as proof of origin (corals, otoliths), etc.
Do you require reference materials for your project, but are unable to find any commercially available? Just contact us about sending in your raw-material. We will process it and produce your own project-specific reference material.
