The integrity of knowledge and objectivity are at the core of Xerox® Analytical Services

We provide the scientific community with state-of-the-art microanalytic capabilities, including microscopy, chromatography, spectroscopy and structural analysis.

In order to provide critical insight into the chemical and physical origins of problems, our team of experienced, highly trained analysts uses leading-edge analytical instrumentation for the characterization of material. We support research and development (R&D), manufacturing, problem solving and quality control.

Our Featured Technique: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR)

We’re proud to offer NMR, an analytical service that has widespread applicability in industry, primarily chemicals, pharmaceuticals, synthetic organics, polymers and more. It’s an essential tool to determine:

  • Structures of unknown organic materials, both small molecules and polymers

  • Quantitative composition of the mixtures

  • Chemical reaction mechanisms

  • Molecular dynamics, diffusion and morphology

  • NMR can also be used in a number of ways, including but not limited to:

Problem Resolution, Field Support, Supply Assurance, New Materials and Processes

  • Characterize chemical structures and impurities

  • Provide mechanistic understanding of synthetic processes

  • Validate synthetic procedures

  • Support product development

Vendor Qualification and QC

  • Provide data to establish product specifications

  • Characterize and quantify product composition and purity

Xerox Analytical Service Examples

In addition to NMR, we offer over 30 different techniques, including:

  • Quantifying extractable chemicals by Liquid Chromatography with Ultraviolet/Visible Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry (LC/UV/MS)

  • Quantifying elemental composition (bulk and trace level) by Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy (ICP)

  • Determining material purity by NMR, LC/UV/MS and/or Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS)

  • Analyzing molecular weight distribution by Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC)

  • Characterizing polymer curing by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

Why Xerox Analytical Services

From our esteemed experts to our next-generation equipment, Xerox Analytical Services offers unparalleled analysis and results, in addition to:

Cost savings

Our competitive pricing is significantly lower than similar services offered by other analytical labs. We charge a flat rate of $250/hour of analyst time, regardless of technique or instrument time.

Faster turnaround times

Generally, we’re able to deliver results in two weeks or less. This timing is subject to instrument backlog and uptime.

Full range of analytical services

Our breadth of services includes routine testing, methods development, manufacturing QC, problem solving, R&D analytical outsourcing and custom design across all industries. We also offer special services such as odor analysis.
