Safety for all our products

Have you ever wondered whether high-tech products are safe, or do you just take their safety for granted?
Many Malvern Panalytical solutions are based on potentially hazardous techniques such as laser or X-Ray radiation and must therefore meet the requirements of numerous international Safety Standards. These requirements can be legislative but can also be driven from a marketing perspective. In the end they ensure that our products can be safely sold, installed and used everywhere in the world. As a Director of Product Safety and Compliance at Malvern Panalytical it is …

Using an ASD LabSpec Spectrometer to Determine Moisture and Protein Composition Characteristics in Barley

Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is and has been a trusted analytical method in agronomy for years. Many grain quality indicators are routinely measured or researched using NIR. NIR is a highly cost-effective testing process, offering an alternative to ongoing expensive, and time consuming, laboratory-based wet chemistry. ASD’s portable and online NIR technology systems can be implemented at numerous points throughout the grain or seed production process where and when analysis is most beneficial.
Proper characterization of grain and seed quality is critically important for germplasm development, grain collection and grain processing. Grain …

Chemical analysis of water-related minerals in volcanic landscapes

Malvern Panalytical participated in a field experiment PANGAEA-X 2017 organized by ESA for the chemical analysis of water-related minerals in volcanic landscapes. For this exercise, Lanzarote was selected, the island of 1000 volcanoes.
Two transportable analytical devices from Malvern Panalytical, Epsilon 1 and the ASD TerraSpec Halo, were used for quick identification of minerals in rocks and dust particles. Since both devices use X-rays and infrared energies, they are non-destructive and therefore are complementary techniques for chemical analyses.

Together with Jesús Frías, Professor of planetary geochemistry at the Geosciences Institute in Spain, …

The 11th Ore and Mineral Analysis (OMA) User Day: A Huge Success!

Addressing challenges in mining laboratories
Malvern Panalytical’s expertise center in sample preparation in Québec City held the 11th OMA user day on November 7. The main theme of the event was: Addressing challenges in mining laboratories.

What happened?
Twenty-four people coming from 17 organizations from all around Quebec’s province assisted in various educational presentations on technologies such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), laser diffraction, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) and sample preparation. Half of the presentations were given by Malvern Panalytical experts. The other half was given by relevant guest speakers coming from universities or …
