Jet Fuel by ICP-MS

The measurement of trace metals in petroleum feeds and its derivatives provides vital information required for running sustainable and daily petroleum operations around the world. Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) is used in different petroleum facilities due to its ability to perform multi-element analyses, covering a broad range of concentrations as well as being robust and reliable. ICP-MS is becoming more integrated into petroleum laboratories due to its maturity and versatility.

This talk will cover Agilent’s efforts towards developing an ASTM Jet Fuel method. Many interesting elements that aren’t commonly requested, including Platinum (Pt) and Palladium (Pd), will be discussed with this new ICP-MS method. Preliminary data from the ASTM pilot study will be shared in this talk.

Avoiding Common Time Traps in ICP-MS Analysis: A Virtual Workshop

Inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is a fast, multielement technique used for trace elemental analysis.

But labs that use ICP-MS – or are thinking of installing one – can find it difficult to unlock the true potential of the technique. Unproductive and often unnecessary activities can eat into lab time, reducing productivity, increasing stress, and potentially impacting data quality. Open to all; this workshop will provide insights you can employ to improve efficiency in your laboratory while also reducing pressure on staff and increasing confidence in the results you report.

Food and Cannabis Elemental Analysis Part 2: Elemental Sample Prep for the Food and Agriculture Lab – Optimizing Your System for High Matrix Samples

Trace elemental analysis of foods and cannabis products is essential to ensure that products are suitable for consumption. The analysis of minerals and additional trace elements is also important because it provides labelling information that is required when these products are used as nutritional.

Agilent has presented a webinar series that focuses on elemental sample preparation to optimise high matrix samples in the food and agriculture testing space.

 

Part 1

We will cover the entire Agilent elemental portfolio. Each of the different instruments’ strengths and how they meet the challenges that food and cannabis labs have.

 

Part 2

We will focus on preparing your samples, including microwave digestion. We will also cover how to optimize your system for high matrix samples and a diverse sample set.

 

Part 3

We will put it all together, with running samples live in the lab. We will also share additional tips and tricks for obtaining excellent analytical results in these difficult matrices.

This focused information on spectroscopy applications is valuable for the emerging cannabis market as well as analysts who are seeking to master skills for food testing.
