The NOM’s laboratories are allocated with modern equipments to support the research projects of the NOM and meet the clients’ (researchers, students, industries…etc) requests.

The analytic techniques that are used in the NOM’s laboratories are multiple and varied and are distributed this way :

  • Physical preparation unit
    • Sample reception and maintenance,
    • Rock crushing, drilling core samples, grounds…
    • Granulometric analysis.
  • Classical-chemistry unit
    • Volumetric
    • Gravimetry
    • Water analyses
  • Visible-UV Spectrophotometry unit
    • Analysis of the silica in the waters
    • Analysis of TiO2, P2O5 …

Atomic absorption unity

  1. With a flame
    Analysis of the major elements (Ca, Mg, Al …), in which level varies from 1% to 99%.
  2. Electrothermal
    Analysis of gold contained in the sediments and rocks.
  3. With generation of hydrure
    Analysis of the mercury in waters, sediments, grounds.

Atomic emission unity

  1. Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP)
    Analysis of the trace elements (Zn, Pb, Cu, …)
  2. Direct Current Plasma (DCP)
    Analysis of the trace elements (Zn, Pb, Cu, …)
