Importance of traceability of laboratory standards

Laboratory analysis involves measurement and quantification of several common quantities, such as, mass, volume, temperature, pH, specific gravity, refractive index, light absorbance, etc for which the commonly used standards are: Mass – Certified reference weights Volume – Volumetric flasks, burettes or pipettes Temperature – Platinum resistance thermometer pH – Standard buffers Specific gravity – water […]

Differences between Primary and Secondary reference standards used for analytical work

Any chemical analysis can be considered valid only if the method of analysis is validated before adoption and results are reported against internationally recognized standard reference materials. Results of such analysis can be relied upon by consumers as well as other laboratories across the world. Standards are primarily used for the following types of analytical studies: […]

Benefits Offered by Instrumental Methods of Analysis

Advances in instrumental analysis techniques have contributed to our understanding of chemical sciences and developments of new products and processes.In the absence of such techniques it would not have been possible to gain insight into properties and safety of consumption of materials on the basis of their composition.

Contributions of Analytical Chemistry

Analytical Chemistry is an applied branch of chemistry that concerns with the study of chemical composition of materials in terms of composition and how much quantity of each component is present. It proved indispensable to our understanding of basic branches of chemistry, such as, organic, inorganic, physical and biochemistry. The analytical techniques have made possible […]

Essential considerations in moisture determination by Karl Fischer titration

Presence of moisture plays a vital role in deciding characteristic properties and stability of pharmaceutical and food products. Merits and demerits of water determination methods have been covered earlier. Karl Fischer is the preferred method adopted by most laboratories due to its high specificity and selectivity towards water present even in traces levels in a product. […]

Sampling of Gases for analysis by Gas Chromatography

Gas chromatography is an ideal tool for analysis of gases. The versatility of the technique extends its capability to analyse samples such as dissolved solids, liquids and gases. The scope of applications extends from pharmaceuticals, foods, environmental monitoring, petroleum refining, and workplace environment monitoring for safety of workers. Gas samples require special handling as gases […]
