How to Determine Trace Elements in Difficult Samples by ICP-OES
The analysis of high-matrix samples by ICP-OES presents many challenges such as physical, chemical, and spectral interferences. The sample preparation and method development for these sample types is not normally simple. This on-demand webinar provides examples to describe how to simplify the process of selecting a sample introduction system, method development, and accessories needed to produce precise and accurate results whilst achieving optimum productivity.
Perform like a PRO: Robust ICP-OES analysis with the new iCAP PRO Series ICP-OES
A technique of choice for elemental analysis is inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), which is ideally suited for a range of sample types. However, some samples present analytical challenges – these include: high matrix samples such as brines, which impact the sample introduction; samples which produce complex spectrum impacting accuracy. Watch this presentation to find out how the latest ICP-OES technology can address these issues and improve your elemental analysis.
Trace Metals Analysis in Dietary Supplements Using ICP-MS: How to Achieve Regulatory Compliance and Minimize Contamination
This presentation covers ICP-MS analysis of dietary supplements for trace metals and minimizing contamination to meet regulatory compliance. The topics presented include an overview of the technique of ICP-MS, the limitations and interferences of ICP-MS, sample preparation, laboratory hygiene, and the regulations for food and supplement analysis. Case studies and data are presented to show the challenges that regulations for trace metals can present in ICP-MS analysis of food and dietary supplements. Effectively and efficiently combating these challenges of ICP-MS instrumentation in supplement testing for trace metals is discussed, as are strategies for hitting lower limits of quantitation (LOQs) in trace metals using ICP-MS instrumentation to meet regulatory compliance.
