Analytical Services
Analytical Services

We have a broad range of analytical methods and devices available at our facility. We use them not only within the scope of our contract research projects, but we also offer analytical work as independent service. Do you have a special analytical task or need a strong partner for analyses of brines? Please do not hesitate to contact us!



The following analytical determinations and devices are available at our facility:

  • Cation analyses using AAS and ICP-OES
  • Anion analyses (in particular wet-chemical processes like titration vs. AgNO3 or gravimetric sulfate determination)
  • Analyses using cuvette test systems (nitrate, nitrite, TOC, …)
  • Particle size distribution using laser diffraction or sieving machine
  • Characterization of thermal decomposition of organic and inorganic materials at temperatures up to 1500°C by means of DTA/TGA measurements
  • Determination of compressive, bending and tensile strength
  • Recording of UV/VIS spectra and photometric determinations
  • Recording of fluorescence spectra
  • Special titrimetric determinations (e.g. redox titration)
  • Viscosity determinations of solutions and slurries
  • Determination of turbidity
  • Ultrasonic measurement
  • 3D scans
  • Various microscopy and photo devices
  • Analytics of salts and salt solutions (including ion balance)
  • Analyses of historical mortars and plasters
  • Analyses of material from efflorescence
  • Soil analyses
  • Determination of refractive index, melting point and boiling point
  • Test instruments for the characterization of construction materials, e.g. regarding adhesive tensile strength, air content, moisture, setting behavior, swelling, shrinkage
  • Vapor pressure measurements of solutions
  • Determination of salt solubilities
  • Determination of moisture content
  • Determination of swelling pressure
  • Determination of porosity and permeability of soils and rocks (k value)
