[Webinar] Controlling Error and Contamination in Trace Analysis

Sample prep for trace metals analysis

Join us on February 2 and 3, 2022 to learn more about inorganic trace analysis.

Trace inorganic analysis is an essential part of the analytical testing world. In many cases contamination can alter or skew elemental analysis providing inaccurate results. In this webinar, we will discuss the sources of contamination and methods or controlling error with practical best practices for inorganic trace analysis.

What you will learn

  • Understand the ways and routes in which contamination can enter inorganic samples and how to eliminate or control those sources
  • Review best practices for common laboratory sample preparation and dilution techniques used in inorganic sample preparation to reduce contamination and error
  • Learn the appropriate calculations and use of inorganic reference materials and how to translate common conversions to reduce calculation errors
