Characterization of Rocks

With our laboratory facilities rocks can be characterized according to mineralogy, particle size, microscopic distribution of grains inside a rock. Sedimentary rocks can also be evaluated by measuring Total Organic Carbon (TOC).

Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-EOS) is used for the detection of metal ions.
