Hydride elements are chemically difficult to analyze. They volatilize easily and turn to a gas readily. Thus, when samples are heated during digestion, these elements are often lost.
To address this problem, hydride elements are analyzed using special preparation or instrumentation techniques. SGS has the expertise to provide you with a range of methods for hydride element determination, depending on your needs.
Our specific hydride packages are specially formulated to provide reproducible, precise and accurate results.
Many of our other packages include hydride elements but the results may be of lower quality.
