Dedicated In-House Analytical Team

Access to good data is essential. It is particularly important across the spectrum of activities required when designing, scaling and manufacturing nanomaterials.  Most nanomaterial companies outsource this critical operation due to the high cost of equipment, ongoing maintenance and experienced personnel. Outsourcing can add up to higher costs for customers and extended cycle times – leading to a longer commercialization schedule.  This is not the case when you partner with Cerion.

In 2018, we established our own fully-staffed analytical department along with a full suite of state-of-the-art equipment for the characterization of nanomaterials. This on-going strategic investment plays a crucial role in our collaboration with customers, providing lower costs and shorter turnaround times, while providing analysis to support technical decisions along our customer’s product development and commercialization roadmap.

An abridged list of our analytical capabilities are:

  • 4-Point-Probe Sheet Resistance
  • Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy
  • Dilatometry
  • Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS)
  • Gas Chromatography (GC)
  • Vickers Hardness Testing
  • Helium Pycnometry
  • High Temperature Simultaneous Thermal Analysis using Thermogravimetry (TGA) and Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy (ICP-AES/MS)
  • Scanning Electron Microscope with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (SEM-EDS)
  • Static Light Scattering (SLS)
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • UV-Vis Spectroscopy
  • Viscometry
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)
  • Zeta Potential
  • Carbon Sulfur Analysis
  • Microwave Digestion Capabilities
