Customer Testimonials

“GEMS unit (previously ISAAC) at the University of Glasgow has provided high quality analysis from its state-of-the-art facility on demand at a reasonable price for over a quarter of a century. Its microanalysts are always well trained and highly competent, helpful, and able to advise on and resolve problems. Right on our doorstep, we whole-heartedly endorse and recommend GEMS and intend to continue using the facility in the future for our reservoir studies.”

Lomond Associates is a leading, high quality sedimentological consultancy, which has served the oil & gas industry for over 25 years. Lomond provides practical and effective reservoir solutions, integrating sedimentological and petrographic information with relevant data from other disciplines such as biostratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, FMI, and petro-physical studies, to identify the key factors controlling reservoir quality. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a vital tool in its work, and Lomond has particularly used secondary electron (SE) imaging and back-scattered electron (BSE) imaging.
