In March 2016, Shimadzu launched the ICPMS-2030 Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer, the company’s first global ICPMS platform. Shimadzu has been involved in ICP-OES since the conception of the technique in the late 1970ies (ICPQ-100 in 1977). Shimadzu also has a proven track in ICPMS technology and has achieved a leading role in the global market with Asia as the target area so far.

Flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) has been used to study silver nanoparticles being tested as antibacterial agents against resistant strains of bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus.

The differences in trace element concentrations among 19 different bone elements procured from 10 archaeologically derived human skeletons dated AD 1150-1810 were studied by ICPMS and cold vapour AAS.

An ICP-OES method was developed as a low-cost alternative to isotope dilution ICP-MS for measuring K and Cu in infant formula, using an exact matrix-matching approach to minimize biases due to matrix mismatch.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

Professor Tony Mallet of the University of Greenwich presents an essay on elemental compositions from 'accurate mass' determinations.

See how you can determine the emission spectra of hydrogen and other elements with a diffraction grating, a meterstick, and a little trigonometry.
