Total Workflow - Sample Prep Approach to Optimize Elemental Analysis

ANALIS ACADEMY SEMINAR

REGISTER NOW


This seminar presents a ‘Total Workflow’ approach to sample preparation and proposes ways to improve key aspects of elemental analysis such as lab throughput, data quality, costs safety.

As the performance of atomic spectroscopy techniques for elemental analysis has improved over the past several decades, there has been a concurrent need for improvements in sample preparation. While the sample digestion step appropriately draws the most attention in the preparation process, there are other important steps in the sample preparation workflow that also impact the outcomes of the laboratory, some of which may be unexpected in scope and scale. 

Just as importantly, we also offer practical advice for preventing workflow disruptions, such as incomplete digestions or sample contamination, which can prevent a laboratory from meeting their overall performance, cost, and safety goals. 
Several of the presentations include methods and tools for acid purification, automated reagent addition, vessel handling, microwave digestion, sample filtering, and labware cleaning.

EVENT SCHEDULE

MORNING SESSION 

09.30-10.00


Overview of a "Total Workflow" Approach to Sample Prep and Why it matters:

With the "Total Workflow" concept for sample preparation for elemental analysis, discover which steps are critical to avoid workflow disruptions that impede the analysis process.

10.00-10.30


In-house Acid Purification

High-purity acid expenses for elemental analysis labs may consume a significant portion of the operational budgets. Learn how to bring acid purification in-house for considerable cost savings and uninterrupted analysis workflow.

10.30-11.00


Automated Reagent Dosing

The reagent addition step of the sample preparation process has traditionally been a tedious and laborious task within elemental analysis labs. Discover how to automate this step, while assuring greater consistency.

11.00-11.30


Rotor-Based Microwave Digestion, Vessel Handling and Sample Filtering

Learn how various aspects of rotor-based digestion vessels, systems, and accessories can optimize a workflow, as well as avoid disruptions such as the need to rerun samples.

11.30-12.00


Single Reaction Chamber Microwave Digestion

The Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) microwave digestion technology provides many benefits that include higher overall sample throughput, faster digestions for difficult samples, and reduced labor requirements.

12.00-12.30


Automated Labware Cleaning

Using acid baths and microwave systems for cleaning sample prep vessels and labware can have a substantial impact on an elemental analysis lab’s workflow, and efficiency. Learn how to automate this step using acid-steam cleaning.

12.30-13.30
