Microplastics in the Environment Virtual Symposium

Agilent’s expertise provides a range of analytical solutions to both identify and quantify microplastics in the environment.

In our Microplastics Symposium, hear from industry experts and peers working within the field of Microplastics.

With a mixture of live talks across various topic areas and product demonstrations, this event is a great opportunity to uncover more about microplastics analysis in the lab. We will also have our experts available to chat live on the day, allowing you to further increase your knowledge and skills on this topical issue.


What topic areas can you expect to see on the day?

  • Microplastics Analysis with the 8700 LDIR with a focus on the marine environment;
  • Quantification of Microplastics with GC/MSD;
  • Current activities in the world of standardization;
  • Microplastics Analysis with the GC/Q-TOF;
  • And more.

Analysis of Alcohol Levels in Hand Sanitizer by FTIR

Alcohol quantification is a common FTIR measurement. Measuring calibration standards and creating a method for routine analysis takes little expertise and approximately 15 minutes with Agilent instrumentation. Measuring samples and generating accurate color-coded pass/fail results takes less than a minute per sample and can be done in the lab or at site.

Quick and Real-Time Determination of Potency in Cannabis Extracts using FTIR Spectroscopy

Cannabis products that are currently on the market consist of either dry material such as flower buds, concentrates such as shatter, budder, waxes, oils, extracts, and distillates, or infused products such as food and candies. The main active ingredients in these products are chemical compounds called cannabinoids, which provide either a medicinal or recreational effect to consumers. Of the many different cannabinoids that have been isolated from cannabis plants, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiol (CBD), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) compounds are generally those of greatest interest and the most prevalent found in commercial cannabis plants.
