MICROPLASTICS
CHEMICAL ANALYSIS

 

"I'm always astounded to look under the microscope. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of plastic bits continuously breaking off already tiny pieces. I'm excited about our capabilities, but reminded of how bad the problem is."

Ethan Edson, Co-Founder

 

CHEMICAL CHARACTERIZATION

ACCURATE. RAPID. READY.

Chemical characterization of suspected microplastic particles provides insight into the polymer composition and provides a definitive determination of microplastics.

 
 

PUBLISHABLE DATA

Verification of plastic and polymer identity is increasingly required for scientific publication.

FEATURES

  • Net tow samples >400μm are analyzed for suspected microparticles by an FT-IR equipped with a diamond ATR crystal

  • Filter-based samples analyzed by a micro-FT-IR equipped with a Germanium ATR crystal

  • Micro-FT-IR enables analysis of particle sizes down to 50μm and fibers of 10-20μm thickness

  • Acquired spectra are compared to a library consisting of 250,000 known polymers, plastics, polymer additives, plasticizers and packing materials
