Situ Biosciences Adds Elemental Analysis

Elemental Analysis Supporting Microbial Product Development

As part of the continuing commitment to our customer’s growing testing and development needs for antimicrobial and biodegradability testing, Situ Biosciences announces expanded elemental analysis capabilities.

State of the art Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS) allows concentration measurements as low as sub-part per billion (ppb).

AAS  provides excellent QC references, product development analysis, and meets EPA regulatory analysis requirements for manufacturing, consumer, and environmental applications.

For our customers the elements of interest are those found in many microbial product types such as:

  • Antimicrobial additives
  • Antimicrobial formulations
  • Material ingredients or finished products
    • plastic/polymer master batches
    • liquid preservatives
    • coatings
    • liquids
  • Biodegradation and Compostibility Compliance with EPA Guidlines

Correctly applied, analytical analysis can be the fastest way to determine why a products performance is not meeting specification, providing you with the best solution in the shortest time.
