Supporting the UN’s “Ocean Decade” via Direct Trace Elemental Analysis of Seawater

Webcasts

Tuesday March 22nd 2022 at 11 am EDT | 8 am PDT | 3 pm GMT Join this webinar to learn about recent methods for the direct analysis of trace elements in seawater, leveraging the benefits of proven ICP-MS technologies for challenging matrices, including multi-quadrupole technology, which provides the added benefit of interference-free analysis, ideal for open-ocean seawater matrices, where trace elements are even lower than in coastal areas.

Event Overview:

With rising global populations and increasing industrialization of both land and sea, the contamination of seawater by metals and metalloids is of growing concern and needs to be monitored. However, due to high total dissolved solids (TDS) in this matrix, seawater is one of the most difficult sample types to analyze for the presence of heavy metals and other trace elements. In this webinar, you will learn about recent methods for the direct analysis of trace elements in seawater, leveraging the benefits of proven ICP-MS technologies, including multi-quadrupole technology which provides the added benefit of interference-free analysis, ideal for open-ocean seawater where trace elements are even lower than in coastal areas. These innovative technologies will help regulators track and measure their ability to meet the sustainable development goals of the United Nations (UN), as outlined in its “Ocean Decade” initiative.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • For the analysis of high TDS samples, such as seawater, learn about unique approaches that minimize matrix effects and increase versatility while reducing sample turnaround time and delivering accurate and precise results.
  • For the added challenge of even lower-concentration trace elements, such as those of open-ocean seawater, discover the benefits of multi-quadrupole ICP-MS technology for outstanding interference removal and how this translates to exceptional detection limits.
  • Understand how these innovative technologies will help regulators track and measure their ability to meet the United Nations’ sustainable development goals as part of the UN “Ocean Decade” initiative.

Who Should Attend:

  • Directors, managers and technicians of testing laboratories analyzing seawater and high TDS samples
  • Researchers and regulators focused on ocean science and trace elements in the hydrosphere
