X-Ray Diffraction can analyze man-made materials including organic polymorphs, (phase analysis or phase identification) as long as they are at least internally crystalline; this is of great value. In pharmaceuticals this can be the product of pure drug synthesis or of formulation. A large part of materials science products can be investigated using XRD. The method can analyze not only the over 4000 known minerals but a much larger number of crystalline man-made materials that Chemists, Materials Scientists and Engineers worldwide have produced for electronic, optical, semiconductor, laser and for pure research purposes over decades of work.
Price to Industry: Starts at $60 for basic service. Industry often asks for more detailed work and may therefore cost more, so please ask us. We also offer an XRD Service on sub-milligram samples if needed.
Having been with Industry as Research Chemist for over 20 years I understand Industry’s concerns about confidentiality of data and the importance of prompt and reliable results.
