Get to know Metrohm



With more than half a century of experience in voltammetry, we offer you not only powerful measuring systems, but also a wide range of applications and competent support. In this newsletter we will show you how you can improve efficiency in your lab and have more flexibility, more convenience, and more security.

Improving Efficiency and Reducing Costs with Voltammetry

The new automated trace analyser from Metrohm offers 10 good reasons why it can improve the efficiency of your laboratory whilst significantly reducing the costs per analysis when compared to other trace metal techniques like AAS or ICP.

• Up to 28 samples may be run unattended at any time to include a suite of metals e.g. Zn,Cd,Pb,Cu,Ni,Co.

• Extremely low running costs with no expensive flammable gases or lamp changes needed.

• Calibration on every sample using standard addition technique eliminating matrix effects seen using spectroscopic techniques.

Small footprint – less than a metre- with no expensive fume extraction required, meaning it’s also portable.

• Speciation studies possible allowing statements to be made about biological availability and toxicity of heavy metals making it an essential tool for research.

• Detection limits for heavy metals at parts per trillion levels, essential for monitoring of ever decreasing regulatory consent levels required to meet new EU directives.

• Versatility – quantification of heavy metals, organic and anions using the same equipment. The determination of organic additives in electroplating baths can also be determined with optional accessories.

• Ability to determine samples with high ionic concentrations meaning the analysis of saline solutions, pure chemicals, electroplating baths and foodstuffs is no longer an analytical problem unlike with spectroscopic techniques.

• Swiss quality guarantees performance and reliability plus comprehensive support that is expected from a market leader for over 60 years.

• And finally the cost, contact us for a quote and compare to other methodologies!
