A CHROMacademy Partner's Webcast: Fundamentals of ICP-OES
Monday 29th June 2015,
8:00am PDT / 11:00am EDT / 16:00 BST / 17:00 CEST
Inductively coupled plasma – optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) is a commonly used technique for determining the elemental composition of a wide range of materials. Typical sample matrices include environmental, metallurgical, petrochemical, geochemical and pharmaceutical. This webcast will present the fundamental theory and typical instrumentation used for ICP-OES, and provides a good overview of the technique. General instrument setup, plasma formation and sample introduction will be discussed as well as the process of light separation and quantification.
Presented by Matthew Cassap
(Product Manager ICP-OES, AA, Trace Elemental Analysis, Thermo Fisher Scientific) and
Josep Miquel Serret (Training and Technical Consultant, Crawford Scientific).
