Quantachrome Instruments, a leading manufacturer and supplier of powder and porous materials characterization instruments, has long offered measurement services through its application laboratory located at its corporate headquarters in Boynton Beach, Florida. New instruments with new capabilities have been recently introduced to Quantachrome's line of products for sale, so the lab services have also expanded to include these new measurements.
In recognition of this improvement, and the increasing use of its laboratory for fee-based analyses of clients' samples, the lab now has its own distinctive brand name, LabQMC (Quantachrome's Laboratory for Materials Characterization), its own website - www.labqmc.quantachrome.com - and its own logo (above). Quantachrome's President and CEO Scott Lowell comments "We are very excited to give the lab its own distinct identity to acknowledge the quality of the work our dedicated staff provide and to proudly promote the range of services they offer."
The lab specializes in characterizing powders and porous materials in terms of specific surface area, pore size, density, water sorption behavior, reactive gas sorption for catalyst characterization, temperature programmed reduction/reaction/oxidation/desorption, zeta potential and now particle size. Staffed by experienced technicians and scientists, LabQMC employs a wide range of techniques using state-of-the-art automated instruments. These techniques include physisorption, chemisorption, vapor sorption, mercury intrusion porosimetry, gas pycnometry, electrophoresis, and laser diffraction.
