Thermo Fisher Scientific
Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is one of the most powerful techniques used in elemental analysis for environmental applications. It provides the advantages of low detection limits, easy quantification, and high throughput. However, experience and best practice are necessary to best use the technique. This webcast series focuses on both routine regulatory monitoring (Part I) and solutions to improve productivity and overcome the challenges of high-matrix samples (Part II). In addition, we will discuss the use of triple quadrupole ICP-MS to meet the needs of environmental researchers and specialty environmental applications.
The webcast will cover the following:
