Agilent Offers Free Resources Explaining Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
News Apr 27, 2006
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the availability of resources, free of charge, for anyone wanting to understand the principals and capabilities of Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) for trace metals analysis.
A PDF of the 86-page Agilent ICP-MS Primer can be downloaded, or a printed copy requested from Agilent website. A seven-minute video also can be downloaded from the site.
These educational tools are designed for newcomers to ICP-MS as well as experienced users interested in up-to-date information about collision/reaction cells and new speciation applications.
Official limits are in place regarding the levels of a multitude of substances that are deemed to be safe and acceptable in drinking water, but to fulfill these requirements analysts need the tools to enable them to do this. We spoke to Yan Liu, and Katariina Majamaa from Thermo Fisher Scientific about their new columns designed to enable rapid separations of contaminants prior to analysis using ion chromatography-mass spectrometry (IC-MS).READ MORE
