Special analytics

GERRI offers special analytical methods for manifold applications. Those highly sophisticated, large scale scientific instruments are:


Bulk methods to determine global parameter of a sample

  • Laser Diffraction Sensor (dry/wet)
  • Mineral Liberation Analysis (MLA)
  • Quantitative Evaluation of Minerals by Scanning Electron Microscopy (QEMSCAN®)
  • Magnetic measurements like Vibration Sample Magnetometry (VSM) and permagraph-remagraph for soft and hard magnetic materials

Spatially resolved methods to focus on details

  • High temperature microscopy
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy with Laser Ablation (LA-ICP-MS)
  • 3D atom probe
  • µ-X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (µ-XRF) and wavelength dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF)
  • Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF)
  • Tip-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS)
  • Contact angle measurement


Sample preparation

  • Focused Ion Beam (FIB) preparation and oxygen-free transfer vessel


Furthermore GERRI offers routine analyses like XRF, ICP-MS, ICP-OES, AAS, SEM, grain size analysis, chromatography, DSC-TG-DTA-MS, XRD, hot-extraction for light elements for members as well as for customers.
