Agriculture is the science and art of cultivation on soil and the rearing of livestock, and is the most important sector of the Sri Lankan economy. Although Sri Lanka is a fertile tropical land with the potential for the cultivation and processing of a variety of crops, issues such as productivity and profitability hamper the growth of the sector. At SLINTEC Analytical Services, we can provide a quantitative analysis of the elements present in the agricultural products, fertilizers and soils. We are also capable of the characterization of agricultural crops, soils and fertilizers.
Minerals are geological materials which are mined for their commercial value used for their physical and chemical properties. Sri Lanka has many industrial minerals which are used in industries such as coating and ink, paper, steel, rubber, steel, plastic, medicinal, textile and aircraft industry. We at SLINTEC Analytical Services provide qualitative and quantitative analysis for the elements present in minerals. We even conduct solid state structural properties as well as chemical state depth analysis of minerals.
Any substance that is produced by life is classified as a natural product. They are usually small molecules produced naturally by any organism including primary and secondary metabolites. Natural product synthesis poses a fascinating challenge in the field of organic chemistry due to their unique properties. Apart from testing the biological activity of natural products, SLINTEC Analytical Services are able to identify and characterize any chemical compounds present as well as perform a quantitative analysis of the elements present in the natural products.
Pharmaceuticals are drugs and medications that are discovered and developed to be used in the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of disease and for restoring, correcting, or modifying organic functions. In order to produce safe and efficacious pharmaceuticals, we perform several analyses such as the chemical and physical characterization of APIs and excipients, qualitative analysis of APIs and stability testing of pharmaceutical drug products.
Natural and synthetic polymers such as plastics, elastomers and some of the adhesives are manufactured and researched by the polymer industry. Polymer research is a subfield of material science that encompasses the fields of chemistry, physics and engineering. Polymer chemistry branch does large scale polymer synthesis and chemical analysis as well as small scale research and development of novel polymer materials.
The design, manufacture and export of textiles and apparel products is one of the biggest industries in the country. Sri Lanka has built its competitive edge on value-addition rather than cheap production cost, with greater emphasis on product quality and its ability to manufacture niche products. Our services for textiles include surface and structural characterisation of fibres, yarns and fabrics. We are also able to determine the thermal stability and thermal transitions as well as provide qualitative and quantitative analysis of elemental compositions of textiles and paints.
