Analytical testing is performed at every step of the mining process, whether testing samples from the exploration phase, drilling & blasting, crushing & milling, separation, or refining. There are many possible sample preparation methods in order to digest a very diverse range of sample compositions, most of which are not homogeneous. These analyses often require the use of a multitude of chemicals, high purity acids and a lot of manual labor, which can yield potentially inconsistent results. With increasing volumes of samples entering your lab, you need innovative, automated sample preparation methods to not only increase sample throughput but also increase accuracy and repeatability. It's important to get sample preparation right to ensure the accuracy of your results, as well as efficient use of your labor and sometimes limited or precious samples. Discover how PerkinElmer can evolve your sample preparation methods for your wide range of geology and mining samples.
