The tasks of the Inorganic Trace Analysis division encompass all fields of inorganic trace element analysis, in particular high-purity substances, and also the development of suitable analytical methods and devices. This also includes analyses of element species and isotopes in environmentally relevant and biological materials.

The division is an accredited testing laboratory under DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and offers a range of services in this connection. Accordingly, we contribute to assuring the quality of analytical data and apply this expertise to international, metrological committees (IUPAC, CCQM). The specific duties of the division include the development and provision of Certified Reference Materials (primary calibration substances, reference isotopes).
