Elemental analysis is used extensively in many industries, ranging from chemical and environmental applications to the food and agricultural fields, and much more. But how exactly does the process work? How should a sample be prepared for analysis, and how much of the sample is required? What do lab managers and lab staff need to be concerned about in regards to the combustion of the sample? What interferences pose a risk to the samples, and how can they be safely removed? What are the proper steps involved in the separation phase of the task?
Join us as Scott Hughes, PhD, of EA Consumables—the US dealer for globally known manufacturer Elemental Microanalysis—will walk you through the basics of elemental analysis preparation. Scott’s many years in the industry will offer you helpful tips, advice, and action items that you can take back to your own lab to improve operations and ROI. This webinar will present an overview of elemental analysis, and the options available to you when conducting this work. Learn about the science behind the process, the steps you need to take in order to ensure a satisfactory result, and the questions you should ask when deciding what kind of elemental analysis equipment to acquire for your lab. Bring your questions about the elemental analysis process to this presentation, and learn more about how it can increase efficiency and productivity in your lab.
