Preparing a sample
Preparing a sample
A modern, flexible infrastructure capable of multiple deployment provides answers to questions posed by conservator, curators and archaeologists. Non-destructive or minimally invasive analysis by means of micro X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, atom-absorption spectrometry, and infra-red and Raman spectrometry makes it possible to perform both qualitative and quantitative element analyses of inorganic and organic materials. This in turn allows staff to determine the composition of metal alloys, adhesives, pigments, colouring, precious and semi-precious stones, products of corrosion and preservatives.
