High Performance Liquid Chromatography/ Mass Spectrometry
With on-line HPLC/MS, we can now analyze
non-volatile, highly-polar, and thermally-labile compounds which can't
be dealt with effectively by conventional HPLC or GC/MS methodology.
Using multi-wavelength monitoring (diode array) together with mass
spectrometry, our HPLC analysis achieves an unprecedented level of
compound detection and identification.
Pharmaceutical and Bio-technical Applications
The complexity of the compounds encountered in
medicine, nutrition, and in the isolation and purification of natural
or synthetic chemical products demands a level of sophistication in
analytical expertise and instrumentation beyond the reach of most
laboratories. Whether your need is the initial characterization of the
principle components, the identification of impurities, or the
determination of possible chemical or physiological interaction, San
Rafael Chemical Services is prepared to provide the needed assistance
toward meeting these types of research or regulatory requirements.
The number of compounds regulated by the EPA
increases every year (by law). The most cost-effective way, and
sometimes the only way to analyze samples for the presence of the
contaminants being considered for regulation is by HPLC/MS. To date,
drinking water method 553 and solid waste method 8321 have been
established to utilize this instrumentation in order to monitor many
classes of chemicals such as surfactants, azodyes and organophosphorus
compounds, all known to have adverse effects on the environment.
Our goal at San Rafael Chemical Services is to
keep pace with the rapid advances in analytical technology. We want to
provide easier access to the information made available through these
new techniques. By incorporating the most up-to-date, productive,
conclusive, and cost effective means available, we are able to address
the widest range of analytical applications possible.
