By watching this presentation, you will learn about:
- new software tools that can help you simplify method development and reduce errors during analysis
- AI-based software tools that provide real-time warning of unpredictable events such as nebulizer leaks and blockage so you can avoid problems before they occur
- essential maintenance tips and routines that can help you overcome the most common causes of unplanned downtime and inconsistent results
Maximizing efficiency in routine analyses is crucial and should be a priority for any lab. Maintaining an efficient lab workplace means you can generate accurate and timely results with high throughput, saving time, energy, and money without sacrificing the quality of your results. Achieving and maintaining that efficiency and doing more with less can help you optimize your workflow and ensure you maintain your reliability, safety, and compliance goals.
In this presentation, we provide some vital tips that can help you improve efficiency in your lab for your ICP-OES and ICP-MS analyses without shortcuts that may otherwise sacrifice quality. We highlight some AI-based software tools that can simplify method development and reduce errors during analysis by avoiding reporting results that have been affected by an interference. These tools can also provide real-time warning of unpredictable events such as nebulizer leaks and blockages, which can help the analyst avoid collecting potentially erroneous data. We also provide some essential maintenance tips and guidelines to help ICP-OES and ICP-MS users identify and overcome the most common causes of unplanned downtime and inconsistent results.
Who Should Watch:
This presentation is recommended for any analyst or lab manager looking to improve efficiency and reduce errors in their routine analysis workflows with their ICP-OES and ICP-MS analyses.
