Analytical laboratory means a facility for the biological, microbiological, chemical, and physical examination of medical marijuana and other matrices containing medical marijuana for medicinal purposes.
The central analytical laboratory of EZ OCM JSC (TsAL) is the same age as the plant. As an independent structural unit of the TsAL organization, it has been operating since 2004.
The main functional activity of TsAL is to perform elemental analysis of materials containing precious metals (DM).
TsAL analytical control objects:
alloys based on precious metals (semi-finished products and finished products from precious metals);
mineral raw materials (placer platinum, gold), including concentrates of precious metals;
secondary waste containing precious metals (tolling and own production);
spent catalysts in the chemical, petrochemical and automotive industries;
chemical compounds of precious metals;
ores containing precious metals and their processing products.
The results of analytical control are used by the plant specialists:
for certification of products and customer-supplied materials;
for certification of own production waste;
when developing new technological processes and new types of products;
to control technological processes;
for maintaining metallurgical balances of the plant and customers;
for settlements with customers.
To carry out its activities, the TsAL has at its disposal: more than 150 methods of analysis; more than 320 sets of standard samples; 18 analytical methods; 46 units of sophisticated analytical equipment; weighing economy in the amount of more than 30 units; a set of equipment for sample preparation.
Analytical control methods used in the DSL:
- Different types of titration
- Atomic absorption
- Atomic emission with arc and spark excitation of the spectrum
- Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission
- Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
- X-ray spectral fluorescence analysis (wave and energy dispersive)
- Infrared spectrometry (determination of gassing components)
- Assay analysis (crucible melting and cupelling)
