Petrographic analysis has been recognised internationally as important in the context of the genesis, metamorphism and usage of coal. The international committee of coal petrography (ICCP) has made some recommendations concerning the nomenclature and the analytical methods. In ISO7DIN Norm 7404 the microscope preparation is described as well as the measuring procedure and the handling of the data in comparison with certified reflection standards.
The TIDAS MSP 200 instrument was developed especially for the needs in petrography and geochemistry. Depending on the chosen configuration of the instrument you can do reflection as well as fluorescence or polarisation analysis on various samples.
J&M’s MSP 200 systems are used in petrographic or geochemical laboratories all over the world, e.g. to find out the concentration of Fusinit or Vitrinit
