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.

Identification of Microplastics Using the 8700 Laser Direct Infrared Imaging (LDIR) System

Contamination in our waterways, soil, air, and drinking water from microplastics is gaining significant public interest due largely to its emergence as an environmental threat. Researchers are now working towards standardized analytical solutions to best characterize these small particles in terms of chemical identity, size, shape, and total mass.

Organizations such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration define a microplastic as any particle of a plastic polymer that is less than 5 mm in size. However, it is smaller microplastic particles, less than 100 μm in size, that are often of the most interest. They are not visible to the naked eye and can make their way into the food chain.
