Golden, CO 80401
PerkinElmer, in partnership with Colorado School of Mines, is providing a hands-on workshop where researchers can learn from the experts on Single Particle-ICP-MS and Field Flow Fractionation (FFF) technologies, in a working laboratory set-up. This rare opportunity will focus on using these techniques for characterizing nano particles. Many application areas will be discussed, including: environmental release and exposure, nanoparticle life cycle, fate, transformation and environmental impact of nano materials. We welcome members from academic institutions, government agencies and industrial companies to join us for this unique training session. Registration Includes: A rare opportunity to receive hands on training for characterizing metallic nano particles by SP-ICP-MS and FFF (Field Flow Fractionation) Understanding options for characterizing nano particles in aqueous solutions Training on how to get the most out of your FFF and/or SP-ICP-MSLearn the latest in FFF and SP-ICP-MS method techniques for nano particles Ability to collaborating with other professionals interested in characterizing nano particlesAll necessary training materials and refreshmentsHands On SP-ICP-MS System and Application Training with Nano Particles Detecting and measuring single particles by SP-ICP-MS has been well-studied in recent years. Analysis in single particle mode uses thousands of fast, individual readings with the goal of capturing individual nano particle events one at a time. The particle mass can then be determined by the intensity of the SP-ICP-MS response. These capabilities provide users with several important nanoparticle characteristics such as inorganic composition, concentration, size, size distribution, agglomeration as well as the ability to differentiate between ionic and particulate fractions. Collection and processing of spICP-MS data will utilize the newly released Nano Application Module within PerkinElmers Syngistix for ICP-MS software that is the ideal tool for laboratories analyzing nanomaterials. This unique application module allows the differentiation and quantification between the dissolved and particulate fractions of the same analyte. The Syngistix Nano Application Module is the worlds first single particle ICP-MS dedicated analysis software, delivering speed, flexibility, automation, and ease-of-use. www.perkinelmer.com Hands On FFF System and Application Training with Nano Particles Field-flow fractionation, abbreviated FFF, is a separation technique where a field is applied to a fluid suspension or solution pumped through a long and narrow channel, perpendicular to the direction of flow, in order to cause separation of the particles present in the fluid, dependent on their differing "mobilities" under the force exerted by the field. http://www.postnova.com Coupling FFF to SP-ICP-MS provides element analysis over a broad size range, providing users with several important nanoparticle characteristics such as inorganic composition, concentration, size, and size distribution. Hands-on training will include FFF operating procedures, optimization of separation conditions, and data processing.View More >
