SIROQUANT QUOTED IN INTERNATIONALLY RELEASED ARTICLE: Characterisation of MSWI fly ash through mineralology and water extration

Siroquant has been used as a reference in the recently released article by Athanasius Bayuseno (Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany) and Wolfgang Schmahl (University of Munchen, Germany).   Details at: Click here.   

MARK RAVEN AND PETER SELF WIN THE 5th (2010) REYNOLDS CUP

Mark Raven and Peter Self  from the Mineralogical and Geochemical Services group at the CSIRO Land and Water in Adelaide South Australia, using SIROQUANT, were recently named winners of the 5th Reynolds Cup, run by the international organisation Clay Minerals Society.  Sixty three participants from 22 different countries competed using three samples.     The Reynolds Cup is a blind round robin allowing participants an unrivalled opportunity to test their given methods in complete honesty in order to identify both strengths and weaknesses.

ANNOUNCING SUCCESSFUL GRADUATES AT LATEST SIROQUANT TRAINING COURSE

Congratulations to Ian Kelly (Technician) with Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (Sydney, Australia); Biony Jones (Technician) with GNS Science (Taupo, New Zealand) and Isabelle Chambefort (Geologist) with GNS Science (Taupo, New Zealand) who recently successfully completed the latest Siroquant Training Course  held in  Australia.   This intensive, hands-on course covered all aspects of Siroquant software including the new SiPhase.

The next Siroquant Training Course is planned for early 2011.    

AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL POLICE LEADING THE WAY WITH ON-SITE FORENSIC TESTING

The Australian Federal Police are taking the lead in implementing innovative forensic science capabilities, becoming the first agency in Australia to take delivery of an instrument that can be used for on-site rock and mineral analysis.      

The Terra has been teamed with the Australian-produced software “Siroquant” and the AFP is the first agency in the world to use this pioneering combination to give forensic scientists a mobile and reliable means for analysing crystalline compounds.        

The XRD/XRF Terra analytical instrument is the first of its kind worldwide, and is expected to revolutionise fieldwork by providing mobility and timeliness – two features that are also of great relevance to forensic science. The Terra enables scientists to analyse the mineralogy of rocks (or in the case of forensic scientists, other crystalline materials) in the field, eliminating the need for transporting samples to a laboratory for testing.        

Mr. Luis Thé, General Manager of Sietronics, is excited about the possibilities.  “XRD is acknowledged to be one of the “gold standard” analytical tests for crystalline materials, which are encountered in drug, explosives, and hazardous substance investigations. Until the release of the highly portable Terra, XRD was effectively a lab-based and expensive technique” he said.While all law enforcement agencies are particularly interested in the rapid analysis of hazardous materials, this purchase by the AFP shows an ongoing commitment to supporting technology that has the potential to benefit Forensic partners in broader law enforcement applications.       

Brad Boyer of InXitu, likens the introduction of the Terra to the introduction of the digital mobile phone. ‘When the mobile phone was introduced it really changed everything, people could take them with them, and it changed the way people approached using telephones and communicating with each other.
