Thermo Electron Corporation has designed two training courses in support of its recently launched iCAP 6000 Series.
The courses have been developed to provide iCAP users with the necessary skills to operate these instruments efficiently in a variety of different application areas and allow plenty of hands-on experience.
The course manual, which is given to all attendees includes application notes, hints and tips, data, experiments and detection limits.
The iCAP 6000 Series, which was recently given an "honorable mention" in the Editor Awards at PITTCON® 2006, designed to improve performance up to five times and cuts purge gas consumption, decreasing annual operating costs.
The comprehensive four-day course has been developed for scientists who are unfamiliar with the operating technology of ICP emission spectrometers.
The course aims to provide participants with a complete understanding of ICP theory and demonstrate the vast range of applications of the technique.
Thermo has also designed a two-day course for experienced users who already have a basic understanding of the ICP theory.
This course is also ideal for those migrating from Thermo’s IRIS Intrepid II to the iCAP 6000 series.
Both courses offer full insight into the daily maintenance procedures required for the iCAP 6000 Series so that instrument down time is minimized and performance is optimized.
Additionally, participants will learn how to operate the iTEVA software in order to manipulate, back up and store data in a secure manner and produce comprehensive sample and trend reports.
Participants will also learn to use the iTEVA software to carry out method development while adhering to the principles of Good Laboratory Practice.
Finally, these iCAP training courses are designed to provide skills to use and maintain the accessories complementing the iCAP 6000 series such as Cetac autosamplers, ultrasonic nebulizers and hydride generation accessory.
