Equipment

An analytical method describes the essential features of an analytical procedure based on a particular analytical principle.

We use different analytical principles such as chromatography, microscopy and spectroscopy which require a range of modern instruments. The classical principles such as gravimetry and titrimetry are also used.

This page gives an overview of the equipment used at revierlabor (categorized according to business areas).
