Are you interested in learning more about ICP-MS sample speciation? Separation Science and Agilent have collaborated to bring you a series of video tutorials focused on ICP-MS analysis. In the third tutorial, presenter Gareth Pearson and guest presenter Jenny Nelson, cover the topic of ICP-MS sample speciation. They set the scene with an introduction and overview of the topics, before providing an in-depth look at HPLC-ICP-MS and GC-ICP-MS applications.

This tutorial offers the following key learning outcomes:

  • Understand what is speciation analysis
  • Learn why we use HPLC coupled with ICP-MS for speciation
  • Know how to couple HPLC with ICP-MS
  • Find out about some of the typical applications

Run time: 20 minutes

There are a total of four tutorials in the series, with the remaining modules covering ICP-MS sample introduction, ICP-MS application-specific setup, and laser ablation (LA) ICP-MS.
