One day course.
A laboratory is normally requested to determine the composition of a material or product. The analysis of materials is the means by which a company determines that their product meets the quality criteria expected by the consumer.
All laboratories, no matter what type, provide a service that is based upon an analytical function. The basis of any modern day laboratory is analysis. For a chemistry based laboratory we are generally talking about chemical analysis.
Chemical analysis can be described as the determination of the chemical composition or make-up of a sample via a series of laboratory operations. This seems a very broad description so analysis is divided into two arbitrary areas:
- Wet chemical (classical) techniques; and,
- Instrumental techniques.
This can be divided further into qualitative and quantitative analysis.
