Speed, accuracy and personal service

Scope of Wheal Jane Laboratory’s analysis work continues to grow

In recent months, considerable interest has been shown in analysing for silver in plastics and fabric samples. Several clients have presented a range of materials requiring analysis. Levels identified have ranged from greater than 10,000 ppm to sub-ppm, and have required the use of different methods and instrumentation techniques.

Often used as an antibacterial additive, it is increasingly important for manufacturers to know that the target levels of silver are being achieved.

The laboratory is also currently in the process of managing the disposal of over 140 tonnes of mining test work project sample material. This work has required a detailed sampling survey and an extensive analysis suite to ensure the site is left clean and contamination free, and that the samples are disposed of in accordance with strict Environment Agency guidelines.
