Achieving the lowest possible detection limits with ICP-MS/OES by minimizing contamination and blanks

The analytical instrument is just one component in achieving the lowest limits of detection using plasma spectrochemistry. The other critical area that puts significant demands on a laboratory’s overall detection capability is to ensure that the sample preparation procedure does not contribute any additional sources of contamination.

How Much are you Paying for Ultra-pure Analytical Grade Acids?

Purify your own HF, HNO3 and HCl acids with the Milestone subCLEAN system is the smarter choice for your lab. Low cost, low grade acid is automatically loaded into the distillation container where it is gently heated below its boiling temperature using a sub-boiling technique. High purity acid vapours rapidly condense into a collection bottle by forced air cooling meaning that no chiller is required either.

Superior power and performance for high-volume laboratories

The ETHOS UP with MAXI-24 HP high throughput rotor was designed to process increased volumes of sample types and weights within a single rotor-based platform. That means you can focus on what counts: increased throughput, high-quality data and more profitable runs.

Why does the cannabis industry need to get better at measuring heavy metals

The cannabis plant is known to be a hyper-accumulator of heavy metals in the soil and growing medium, so it’s critical to monitor levels to ensure cannabis products are safe to use. Unfortunately, there are many inconsistencies with heavy metal limits due to the lack of clear and common regulations. Most define four heavy metals (Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury) while others specify up to nine.
