Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches European Seminar Series: “New Frontiers in Water Analysis”

01 Mar 2012 - 30 Dec 2012 - Europe



Bookmark and Share


Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, has announced its seminar series “New Frontiers in Water Analysis.”  Planned for major European cities between March and December of 2012, the seminars will focus on recent changes to Europe’s water analysis regulations (the EU Water Framework Directive), ramifications for laboratories performing routine water analysis and research and advancements in applicable analytical methods and technologies.

 

Guest speakers and Thermo Fisher specialists will present effective approaches to targeted and non-targeted detection of emerging contaminants such as disinfection byproducts, pesticide residues, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, species of trace elements and endocrine disruptors

 

The seminars will feature new Thermo Scientific water analysis products and solutions, including automated sample preparation; hyphenated techniques, such as liquid, ion and gas chromatography coupled to advanced mass spectrometry systems; and laboratory information management systems (LIMS). The company will also present novel approaches to non-targeted screening that employ high-resolution mass spectrometry based on Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass analyzer technology and new data processing tools.
