McCampbell Analytical Inc. can quickly identify and quantify the contents of solid samples using several powerful techniques. To identify and quantify the compounds that are in a sample, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Attenuated Total Reflectance Infrared Spectroscopy (ATR-IR ) provide powerful insight into both the structure and chemistry.
To identify and quantify the elements that comprise a sample X-Ray Fluorescence Energy-dispersive Spectroscopy (XRF-EDS) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy (ICP) quickly reveal the chemistry of your material.X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
For compound identity of samples likely to be inorganic (for example minerals, metals, soils) X-ray Diffraction is the method of choice.
XRD can answer general questions like:
Or technical questions like:

For compound identity of samples likely to be organic (for example plastics, fabrics, nature products) or combination of inorganic and organic, ATR-IR is the method of choice.
Questions ATR-IR can answer:
If your sample has a flat surface or is a powder, it can be analyzed without any damage, even samples as small as 0.1 gram.
