Mining & Minerals Analysis

Robust, Reliable and Efficient Geochemical Analyses

The ability to carry out fast and accurate multi-element analyses is very important to mining laboratories. Some of the world's biggest operations benefit from the productivity and precision of Agilent instruments such as the Microwave Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer (MP-AES) that runs safely on air, enabling unattended multi-element analysis, as it operates without the use any flammable or expensive gas.

In addition, smaller, remote laboratories and field operations also feature the easy-to-use Micro GC for analyzing mine gas and the handheld FTIR for at-site rock and mineral analysis. Our unique ICP-OES technology provides robust, reliable performance for challenging conditions and samples in geochemical analyses, and ICP-MS instruments also ensure the highest levels of confidence in ultra-trace analysis.
