To achieve high-quality analytical results, it is important to prepare samples properly. Sample preparation is a crucial part of the geochemistry testing process as it includes all the laboratory steps to render a sample that is suitable for chemical analysis. Correct sample preparation results in sub-samples that are representative of the entire sample.
We provide sample preparation for a wide range of materials to ensure you achieve high-quality results.
