   Pricing Information

TotalScan $200.00
This is a semi-quantitative survey of your bath by ICP analysis which will look for more than 25 elements that are possible contaminants in your plating bath. This coupled with TOC analysis is what we call TotalScan. TotalScan will give you a complete overview of both the metallic and organic contaminants in your plating bath. What is ICP? ICP is similar to AA, but much more sensitive. ICP measures in parts per billion where AA measures in parts per million. ICP can also measure many elements that AA either cannot do or cannot do well.
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analysis $50.00
  for plating solutions, waste water, or recycled water  
Acid Copper Package - A Comprehensive Analysis


. This is a complete analysis of your bath and deposit. The package includes standard analysis of the plating bath plus TOC and five common trace metals, along with tensile strength, elongation and purity of the deposit. If your solution has a third organic component add $15.00.
