MICROPLASTICS ANALYSIS SERVICES

 

"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."

MICROPLASTICS ANALYSIS SERVICES

ACCURATE. STANDARDIZED. RAPID.

Verification of plastic and polymer identity is increasingly required for scientific publication. After you've collected your samples, you can receive physical and chemical analyses for visible and small microplastics particles and fibres. Our processes and protocols are streamlined and eliminate contamination issues, so data production is rapid, reliable and robust.

PHYSICAL ANALYSIS
FOR VISIBLE MICROPLASTIC PARTICLES

For microplastics collected from net tows or beach samples, use our Imaging System in the field or the lab with your own smart phone. Rapidly receive comprehensive quantitative size, colour and categorical calculations through our online data portal.

ALL-INCLUSIVE PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL MICROPLASTICS ANALYSIS

For microplastics down to 50 microns and fibres down to 250 microns in width, send your samples to our lab and receive Raman-based chemical polymer identification and machine learning-based physical size characterization for each microplastic particle in your sample. Rapidly access publication-ready data through our online data portal.

FILTER OR SMALL PARTICLE AND FIBER ANALYSIS

Send your samples to our lab for microscopy and FTIR analysis. Receive publication-ready physical and chemical characterization. Rapidly access publication-ready data through our online data portal.
