Spectroscopy Spotlight
Out of this World: The Next Generation of Medical Diagnosis
The University of Leicester (Leicester, UK) has achieved a world first by establishing a Star Trek-style “sick bay” in a busy hospital accident and emergency ward. Part of the demonstration unit uses spectroscopy techniques used for real-time air fingerprinting (RAFT) to perform rapid and non-invasive diagnosis of illness. Spectroscopy interviewed Paul Monks, Professor in Atmospheric Chemistry and Earth Observation Science — one of the key forces behind the project — to find out more. MORE »

Editors' Series: Bulk and Single Nanoparticle Analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
9:00 AM EST
The analysis of nanoparticles in various matrices has been carried out by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and various applications have demonstrated its efficient detection capabilities. In this seminar, we will discuss such applications to understand the best approaches to ICP-MS methods for nanoparticle analysis.
