Below are some of the current BRInE laboratory analytical capabilities:
Current BRInE laboratory analytical capabilities include:
Total dissolved solid measurements
Anions (Br-, Cl-, and SO42-) by ion chromatography
Major and trace elements (26 total) by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES).
The ICP-OES consists of a vertical torch for radial viewing of the analytical area, far UV addition, and nitrogen gas purge within optical chamber and detector, for improved sensitivity and halogen detection.
The ICP-OES is also equipped with a sample introduction system designed for high salinity samples removing, or greatly reducing, the need for sample dilution prior to analysis.
