Method Development
Method Development

The “right” analytical technique for a particular project depends on many factors. Traditional approaches and known methods may be too expensive or too slow. Perhaps the customer does not want the sample to be destroyed or physically altered during the analysis. Or perhaps sensitivity to a particular characteristic or element is not sufficient with typical methods. In special cases customers need customized support to research and / or develop non-traditional methods and approaches to solve their specific challenges. At Covalent, we see our mission as solving customer challenges, not selling from a catalog. If you have been struggling to find a method or recipe that meets your needs, our experts are available on a best-efforts, project or hourly basis to support you in your project.
