Sheffield Assay Office has built an excellent reputation for a user-friendly, interactive and confidential service that responds sensitively to the individual and specific needs of our many and varied customers.


ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry)
This is hi-tech analysis capable of reporting up to 56 elements simultaneously and is eminently suitable for as-supplied liquid samples and samples that respond to dissolution.

XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence)
This is regarded as the standard for many applications of major and trace element analysis, from fluorine to uranium.

ICP -MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry)
This state -of-the-art instrument with Octapole Reaction Cell technology, provides the unchallenged capability to determine a range of elements in various sample matrices down to sub parts per billion.


Reporting times and methods are agreed prior to analysis and are complied with.

Each sample must be assessed in order for a lead-time to be defined.

Reporting is by most electronic and physical means, as requested.
