Modern researchers employ various methods nowadays to properly perform their in-vitro research and yield the best results in compliance with the current regulatory climate.
Regardless of the molecule one is studying, GC/MS testing, short for Gas Chromatography & Mass Spectrometry testing is generally the go to analytical method to identify substances within a test sample. GC/MS equipment is generally made of a Gas Chromatograph and a Mass Spectrometer. For more information on how GC/MS testing works, we recommend visiting the official wikipedia page.
Another common method of analysis is FTIR, short for Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy FTIR is a technique used to obtain the infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid or gas.
Knowing the properties of your target molecule adds more ways to rapidly assess the legitimacy of the compound bought. Water solubility tests are something every lab can perform with only minimal equipment. Sterile measured beakers, gloves, goggles, lab-coat, sample substance (and any required special handling equipment your molecule warrants), and distilled water. The rest should be well within the realms of your expertise.
Furthermore, one may also perform pH tests to determine the acidity (or alkalinity) of a sample if one knows the target pH.
There are many more methods to perform analytical research on a substance, ranging from analytical methods, instrumental & chemical methods, etc. As licensed, accredited and certified researchers, we all have a duty to the integrity and safety of all research performed.
If we have any doubts about the validity of your expertise, we reserve the right to refuse service.
Last but not least, to identify anything that ISN’T supposed to be in a sample, reagent tests will offer peace of mind. We stand by all of our products, and that’s why we also sell test kits on our marketplace. Be sure to grab your test kit today for safe research.
(Each kit provides upwards of 50 tests, guaranteed)
