Ores, Alloys & Metals Testing

The steps to finding, extracting and processing geological materials and minerals are many. Each step of the mining process from drilling and blasting, crushing and milling, separation, refining, and distribution, requires fast sample testing and sometimes multi-element testing, and often at ultra-trace levels, to ensure quality of the materials you are selling into the market. The mining industry and the contract testing labs serving the industry analyze high volumes of ores, alloys and metal samples day-in and day-out for composition, impurities and isotope ratios. These sample loads require high-throughput technologies that achieve reliable results, repeatedly and with long-term stability. Discover how PerkinElmer's portfolio of solutions set the standards for speed, accuracy and robustness for the analysis of mining materials applications.
