PRECILAB is routinely asked to perform trace contamination or bulk characterization on many types of materials. Solids associated with advanced manufacturing processes and techniques can require ultratrace analysis to isolate and identify the source of a processing problem. Customers need to understand the nature of a new material during process development and qualification of a material for control purposes.

Testing Methods:

Sample Types:

  • Filter media from inline filters or process tooling
  • Surface contamination swabs or wipes
  • Lithium ion substrates
  • Process test coupons
  • Precursor chemical samples
  • Residue from surfaces (corrosion, break-down, discoloration)
  • Extractables from solid samples (leachates)
  • Bottle qualification for contamination
