From identifying unwanted odors in cheese to analyzing surface defects in performance materials, our capability in molecular imaging helps to shed valuable new light on our customers’ applications.
A design-driven approach
Our work on molecular imaging is based on the latest design-driven approach and increasingly covers not only the composition of molecules in materials, but their organization.
Through faster and more efficient analysis of crystallization and the organization of the different constituents we give customers a far clearer insight into the relationship between chemical composition and mesoscopic properties.
Solving real analytical problems
Just two ways that our macromolecular capabilities have helped customers:
- Identifying surface property defects in materials
In order to help our customer better understand the distribution and organization of substances in (bio)materials and how they caused defects we used imaging and spectroscopic techniques including IR, MS, EDX, MRI, and UV-VIS.
- Analyzing electrical ‘shorts’ in electronic devices
The electronic components produced by our customer were suffering shorts, leading to a higher reject rate. By using elemental mapping - specifically, microphobe-EDXRF analysis - we identified the probable causes.
