Technology Forum
ICP-MS Technology Forum
Inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is one of the primary techniques for trace elemental analysis. This Technology Forum discusses the effects of carbon in samples and the use of correction equations to account for interferences. Participants in this Forum include Deborah Bradshaw, consultant and Spectroscopy Editorial Advisory Board member; Shane Elliott, ICP-MS Products Global Business Manager for Bruker CAM; and Charles A Schneider, Inorganic Product Planning Manager at PerkinElmer.

FT-NIR Spectroscopy: Combining Performance, Precision, and Simplicity
Thursday, January 19, 2012
11:00 AM EST
This webcast will introduce a new FT-NIR instrument, with a low cost of ownership, that we believe can transform the way you currently analyze samples. We will present applications from the life sciences, chemical, polymer, feed, and food industries to demonstrate the accuracy and precision of the analysis in comparison with the primary methods.
Introduction to and Instrumentation for Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
11:00 AM EST
This educational seminar will emphasize a) the fundamental principles by which the various components of ICP-MS devices function, b) the basic capabilities and limitations of ICP-MS, and c) how these principles influence the design of effective tactics for analytical applications. Specific topics discussed include: general analytical capabilities of ICP-MS, ICP as an anion source, ion extraction, transmission & focusing, mass analysis- quadrupole, magnetic sector , matrix effects, applications survey, removal of polyatomic ions – high resolution, desolvation, cool plasma, and collision cells.
