About Claisse

Claisse® is the “The First and Finest in Fusion®”. It symbolizes the development of analytical fusion techniques, instrumentation and fine chemistry science. In a nutshell, it embodies outstanding achievements on the world stage in the field of inorganic sample preparation by fusion for XRF, AA and ICP analysis.

A pioneer, Claisse® is a proud company with history dating back to 1976, when the first automatic fusion instrument was invented. Over the following years, the company went on to develop the first fused fluxes with integrated non-wetting agents. Other past inventions include the Claisse® Bis!™ crucible–patented in 1984–and the Claisse® Optimix™ crucible, which offers a unique composition of pattern and the highest benefits.

Designed for unprecedented analytical accuracy and repeatability, Claisse’s gas and electric automatic fusion apparatuses such as the “TheOx® Claisse Fluxer®” and the “M4™ Claisse Fluxer®” set new benchmarks in fusion capabilities. The same is true for Claisse’s “rFusion®” robotic system, platinumware, industry-leading fused, ultra pure, borate fluxes and analytical consulting services.

Technological advances bring unprecedented results; Research and Development lays the foundation that ensures Claisse’s leadership in the field of sample preparation. New projects are continually in progress with a view to supplying XRF, AA, and ICP analysts with the ultimate machinery, accessories and new techniques for their work with fusion.

Long-term and close partnerships are one of the core values of Claisse®. We embrace a proactive approach with our diverse customer base primarily consisting of cement plants, mining companies, universities and laboratories that are involved with geology and mineral prospecting, as well as lime, bauxite, aluminum, ferroalloys, steel, pure metals, catalysts, polymers, ceramics, glass, petroleum and oil companies.
