Precious metal labware is laboratory equipment that is made from precious metals, including platinum, gold, silver, and iridium. Known for their high chemical resistance, durability, and purity, these metals are ideal for use in demanding laboratory applications. Precious metals have high melting points, making them ideal for use in high-temperature applications. They deliver exceptional performance where precision, durability, purity, and resistance to contamination is paramount.
Sectors that use precious metal labware include analytical laboratories, specialist material research, single crystal growth, electrochemistry, pharmaceutical, semi-conductor, archaeology, and material processing.
PI-KEM works with UK and European precious metal suppliers to be able to offer standard and bespoke designs of a range of labware in gold, platinum, and other precious metals.
PI-KEM's precious metal labware is manufactured by industry experts, to strict quality and purity standards and is available with certificates of conformity. We also offer a precious metal reclaim service providing credit against future purchases. Our Precious Metal team can provide advice on labware selection and design, item recycling and day-to-day metal pricing.
