Geochemical Analyses

For the purposes of inorganic analytics, our Kempele Laboratory is equipped with ICP-OES and FAAS devices. When combined with different methods of sample processing (such as acid dissolution and liquid-liquid extraction), they enable a comprehensive and accurate analysis of different sample matrices.

At CRS Laboratories, we perform analyses both on our own account and as a subcontractor for our Canadian partner MSALABS, which is a global provider of geochemical laboratory services for mineral prospecting and mining industry. CRS Laboratories Oy is the representative of MSALABS in Finland.
