Below are some of the laboratory equipment
Applications: High-performance liquid chromatography can be used in both qualitative and quantitative applications that are for both compound quantification and identification. It used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture of compounds in analytical chemistry and biochemistry processes.
Name of equipment: Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES), Location: Mombasa Laboratory
Applications: Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry is a trace-level, elemental analysis technique that uses the emission spectra of a sample to identify, and quantify the elements present. Typical applications include:
Name of equipment: Autoanalyzer, Location: Mombasa
Applications: Nutrient Autoanalyzer is an automated flow-thru system for doing nutrient analysis (nitrate, ammonium, orthophosphate, and silicate) on water and sediment samples.
Applications: The equipment is used for COD, BOD, TOC, pH, Turbidity and Alkalinity in both laboratory and process analytics.
Name of equipment: Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer
Applications: Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometers are used in numerous fields and applications; in Automobiles, Food Products, Metals, Medicine, Electricity, Electronics and Semiconductors, Chemicals and Polymers. Specifically, for Chemicals and Polymers the equipment can be used for:
Applications: The Kjeldahl method is used to determine the nitrogen content in organic and inorganic samples such as foods and drinks, meat, feeds, cereals and forages for the calculation of the protein content. The method is also used for the nitrogen determination in wastewaters, soils and other samples
