Having the Right Chemical Testing Instrument


X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a widely used solution in various industries, particularly for environmental compliance testing of heavy metals like lead and mercury. Its non-destructive nature makes it valuable for analyzing samples without altering them. Here’s a breakdown:

How XRF Works:

  • XRF involves directing an X-ray beam at a sample, causing it to emit fluorescence.
  • Fluorescence occurs when electrons move from higher to lower energy states, emitting photons of light whose energy corresponds to the sample elemental composition.
  • The emitted photons are detected and analyzed to determine the presence and concentration of elements.


  • XRF excels at detecting heavy elements like lead and mercury but struggles with compounds and light elements.
  • It’s suitable for chemical testing with regulations like RoHS, EU REACH, and the EU Battery Directive, which restrict heavy metals.

Environmental Compliance:

  • XRF is valuable for assessing compliance with regulations like RoHS and the EU Battery Directive by detecting restricted heavy metals.

Other Applications:

  • Beyond chemical testing, XRF is used for quality control in industries like electronics to verify product composition.
  • It’s also used for failure analysis and monitoring hydraulic systems for wear and degradation.
  • Sample preparation for XRF is minimal compared to other methods, saving time and costs.
  • Portable XRF devices offer on-site analysis benefits.

In summary, XRF is a versatile tool for environmental chemical testing of heavy metals with limitations regarding compounds and light elements, making it essential to complement other analytical methods when needed.


When technical documentation can’t confirm compliance with regulations like EU REACH or RoHS, analytical testing provides another avenue to ensure product adherence. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) combines gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, offering a robust analytical process.

Overview of GC-MS

  • GC-MS involves two main steps: gas chromatography and mass spectrometry.
  • Gas chromatography converts the sample into a gas phase using an organic solvent, then separates compounds based on interaction with a stationary phase.
  • Mass spectrometry ionizes the sample and separates ions based on the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z), allowing for qualitative and quantitative analysis.
Gas Chromatography (GC)

Applications of GC-MS:

  • GC-MS is effective for analyzing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) relevant to regulations like RoHS and EU REACH.
  • It serves to test restricted substances such as phthalates and root cause analysis in electronic product failures.


GC-MS/MS Technique:

Gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) enhances sensitivity by performing mass spectrometry analysis twice, allowing for precise characterization of substances with the same m/z ratio.

Portable GC-MS Instruments:

Portable GC-MS devices are valuable for field applications due to their size and portability.

In summary, when technical documentation is insufficient, GC-MS provides a powerful tool for product testing, particularly in analyzing volatile compounds relevant to environmental regulations like RoHS and EU REACH.


Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is a powerful analytical tool widely used across scientific fields to analyze gases, liquids, and solids with minimal sample preparation. Here we present the principles, applications, and challenges of FTIR, particularly in detecting phthalates and ensuring compliance with regulations like EU RoHS and IEC 62321.

Overview of FTIR:

  • FTIR is versatile and efficient, offering rapid analysis within seconds and minimal sample preparation requirements.
  • It serves in various scientific domains, including organic synthesis, polymer science, pharmaceuticals, and analytical chemistry.

Molecules Detectable Using FTIR:

  • FTIR spans the infrared region, allowing for the characterization of molecular structures through infrared absorption.
  • Most molecules exhibit infrared activity, enabling their detection except for diatomic molecules like O₂ and N₂.

Direct Analysis in Real-Time Mass Spectrometry (DART-MS) is a groundbreaking technique in chemical analysis, offering rapid detection of various compounds like flame retardants, phthalates, and polyaromatic amines without extensive sample preparation. This section explores the advantages, processes, and applications of DART-MS.

Overview of DART-MS:

  • DART-MS combines Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART) and Mass Spectrometry (MS), utilizing DART as the ionization source for MS analysis.
  • The technique ionizes sample molecules using a high-temperature plasma stream and then separates and detects ions based on their mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) in the mass spectrometer.

The DART-MS Process:

  • It involves sample introduction, ionization, mass spectrometry analysis, and ion detection.
  • DART-MS can utilize different ionization source systems like DART/IonRocket and DART/QuickStrip, each with advantages and sample preparation requirements.

Advantages of DART-MS:

  • DART-MS offers rapid analysis, operates under ambient conditions, and provides sensitive and accurate results.
  • It requires minimal sample preparation, making it versatile and cost-effective for various applications, including environmental compliance, forensic analysis, and product testing.

Applications of DART-MS:

  • DART-MS finds applications in environmental analysis, detecting pollutants like Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
  • It is used for flame retardant testing, phthalate analysis, and screening polyaromatic amines in various consumer products, ensuring safety standards and regulatory compliance.
