LIBS flexibility and FireFly capability provide solutions in numerous fields of research and industry.


  • Correlation of elemental distribution/chlorophyll content
  • Detection of heavy metals and toxic elements in plants
  • Diagnostics of fertilization, detection of P, K N,
  • Determination of nutrition elements in plants/soils
  • Detection of microplastics pollution in biota.

Detection of Cadmium in Sinapis Alba

Cadmium is the third biggest contaminant to fauna and flora. How? Cd modifies the initial intake of minerals from the soil. Our intensity maps of Cadmium will show you more.


Detection of heavy metals in Plants

Heavy metals are slightly becoming a global issue. They can cause severe problems for all living beings. Look at our LIBS map to see the intensity of contamination in plants.



  • Classification of polymers, including the combination with Raman spectroscopy
  • Circular economy: detection of heavy metals in recycled plastic materials
  • Determination of toxic elements in packing materials, toys
  • Input/Output quality check

Quality check of e-Waste

The current phase is simple – plastics are everywhere. Moreover, a lot of them include hazardous chemical substances. States are currently trying to solve the whole situation by adding special legislation. Can LIBS be a helpful technique in the process?


Soft and hard tissues

  • Tag-LIBS
  • Indirect detection of biomarkers through nanoparticle tags
  • Metallomics in soft tissues, cancer tissue analysis
  • Chemical imaging of hard tissues (bones and teeth).

Elemental imaging of Skin Tumors

Could LIBS bring a new perspective on the diagnosis of soft tissue cancer? Form your own opinion while looking at our intensity maps for malignant melanoma.
