RESEARCH-GRADE MULTIELEMENT ANALYSIS
Microwave-Assisted Total Digestion + Alkaline Fusion + Titration
LITH-02R Analyte Table
Samples   are   analysed   by   a   combination   of   alkaline   fusion   (for   high   field-strength   and   resistate   elements)   and   HF/Multiacid   microwave   digestions   followed   by determination   by   ICP-OES   and   ICP-MS   to   give   full   analysis   of   component   metallic   elements.   Carbon   dioxide   content   is   analysed   by   gas   evolution   or   titration,   and   LOI   is performed gravimetrically. FeO is determined titrimetrically. Major rock-forming oxides, base metals, traces, volatile pathfinders, and rare-earth elements are reported, along with carbon dioxide and LOI. LabWest Code LITH-02R
High-precision analysis with full-recovery of resistate minerals and trace elements, by a combination of alkaline fusion, microwave-assisted multiacid digestion and titrimetric techniques. Designed for researchers and exploration professionals.
