Major Equipments

Auriga Research has a state of the art laboratory with equipment and analytical methodologies like: Chromatography (TLC, GC, HPLC, HPTLC, GC/MS, LC/MS/MS, GPC, Headspace Analyzer); Spectroscopy (FTIR, UV/visible, Atomic Absorption) Spectrometry (ICP/MS);

image23

HPLC

High Performance Liquid Chromatography is an analytical tool in a testing lab as it affords separation and quantification of a variety of analytes which are thermally labile and not volatile enough for analysis on GC.

image22

HPTLC

High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography ensures efficient separation in short time. It is used for purity control of chemicals, pesticides, steroids, and analysis & of vitamins, water-soluble food dyes, pesticides in fruits and vegetables.

image10

ICP-MS

ICP-MS is the synergistic combination of an ICP with a mass spectrometer. ICP Testing offers the benefits of speed of analysis along with the lowest detection limits to laboratories performing trace metal determinations.

image20

GC-MS/MS

Gas Chromatography-Mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) is a highly sensitive technique for detection and quantification of organic molecules. The system is finding application in pharmaceuticals, foods and environmental analysis.
