Instrumental analyses

Chromatographic methods:

  • Analysis of liquid and gaseous pyrolysis products
  • Special analysis and identification of gaseous mixtures or gas/air/water polutants using gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection (and optional thermal desorption)
  • Trace analysis of gases and volatile liquids, very low detection limits of H2, CO2, CO, hydrocarbons, etc.
  • HPLC analyses of polyaromatic hydrocarbons and other organic compounds in solutions and sorbents

Analyses of permanent gases (CO, CO2, NOx, N2O) in ambient air and technologic exhaust gases with use of gas-phase infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)

Monitoring of enzymatic and/or protein interactions, proteomics, determination of pesticides/hormones/PCB in waters using Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging
