Analytical Equipment

Analytical equipment is anything whose principle purpose is to qualitatively and quantitatively analyse samples; their chemical make-up and the quantity of each component within it. This separation may be done by one device or it could be combined with another method requiring further investigation with other pieces of equipment. There is a wide range of equipment needed for chemical analysis. Spectrometers and analysers are basic tools to examine particles or individual gases. Devices like the X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer can examine surface and interface conditions looking for foreign particles. With microscopes, the inside of the substance can be directly observed. Compound structural analysis uses equipment like an organic mass spectrometer to investigate the structure of a new chemical substance and its impurities. The analysis of gas generated by heating is performed by devices like heat measuring instruments. Chromatography is widely carried out by many machines to separate and purify substances. Although this equipment is mainly used in laboratories, whether professional or educational, it is also sometimes used in the field for the purpose of on the spot testing of environmental factors or pollution. The pharmaceutical industry makes wide use of analytical equipment in its research for new types of medication.
