Application of High-resolution Mass Spectrometry to Environmental Analysis of Poly- and Perfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs)
29 May, 2019
Christopher Higgins (Colorado School of Mines)
In this webinar, an approach to using HRMS to address the complexity of the PFASs will be presented and discussed. The presentation will cover how HRMS is currently being applied to examining PFASs in environmental samples.
What’s in The Air We Breathe? A Walk Through Canister Sampling and Analysis for Measuring Air Toxics
Helen Martin (Thermal Desorption Product Marketing Manager, Markes International)
Listen to this series of talks addressing 'What are VOCs and Why Measure Them?', 'Choosing the Best Air Sampling Technique for Your Application', and 'A Guide to Canister Sampling'. You will learn how to choose the best sampling technique for your application, what you will need for each stage of a canister sampling cycle, and how to get the most out of your air analysis instruments.
Expert Series: Environmental Applications of Ion Chromatography
Dr Joachim Weiss, Ph.D (Thermo Fisher Scientific)
This presentation covers key environmental applications of ion chromatography including conventional water analysis of common inorganic anions and cations, analysis of disinfection by-products, cyanide analysis, hexavalent chromium analysis and perchlorate analysis.
Overcoming the Challenges of Monitoring PAMS Hydrocarbons and Polar VOCs at Low Ambient Levels
Peter Furdyna (New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, USA) and Rui Li (Markes International)
The presentation includes operating conditions for the Markes–Agilent PAMS autosampler/GC installed at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) PAMS monitoring site at New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NY, and the rationale for these conditions. You will learn how to address the challenges in on-line monitoring of ozone precursors and discover a PAMS success story.
Accurate Mass Spectra Worth Reading for Food and Environmental Analysis
Atsushi Yamamoto (Tottori University of Environmental Studies, Japan)
In this presentation, fundamentals of high-resolution mass spectral interpretation are provided, together with some practical examples in food and environmental analysis.
New Methods & Applications in Environmental Analysis
Lee Marotta (PerkinElmer), Ceara MacInnis (Environment and Climate Change Canada), Carol Meyer (Orsat LLC), Marvin Shaw (University of York, UK)
Separation Science, in collaboration with PerkinElmer, has developed a multi-speaker eSeminar covering methods and applications in environmental analysis. This two-session event will provide analytical scientists and laboratory managers/directors working in this field with access to leading techniques, best practice and robust methods from leading scientists in the field.
The Use of a High Resolution Q-TOF in a Contract Laboratory for Routine Pesticide Analysis in Food & Feed
Wim Broer (Manager, Science & Development, NofaLab, The Netherlands)
This presentation will cover the instrument capabilities and the use of data analysis to create an efficient and robust method for the analysis of pesticides in food and feed commodities.
New Approaches to the Comprehensive, Automated Characterisation of VOC and SVOC Compounds
Massimo Santoro and Gareth Roberts (Markes International)
Comprehensive analysis of volatile and semi-volatile organics in environmental and food samples often demands the use of multiple sample preparation and injection techniques, frequently on several instrument platforms. Such procedures can be labour-intensive and require chemists trained in multiple analytical techniques and instrumentations.
Learn New Methods & Applications in Pesticide Analysis
Separation Science, in collaboration with Agilent Technologies, has created a valuable learning series of on-demand presentations covering methods and applications for pesticide analysis in food and food-related matrices. Presentations available in this series include: 1) Evaluation of a High-Sensitivity GC-MS/MS in the Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Complex Samples: Cost Savings and Other Benefits, 2) Routine Quantitative Pesticide Analysis in Various Food Matrices using a GC/Q-TOF and 3) Improved LC-MS/MS Pesticide Multiresidue Analysis using Triggered MRM and On-Line Dilution
