Today's Agilent - New Solutions for Food and Product SafetySession 1
Today's Agilent - New Solutions for Food and Product Safety

Learn about applications in Food Safety and Consumer Product Testing that utilize Agilent's new range of AA, ICP-OES and ICP-MS products. The potential implications of metals in foods are of increasing interest, both from the point of view of nutritional and health benefits (e.g. Selenium supplementation) and from the point of view of potential toxicity. Regulated limits for many heavy metals are being reduced, and it is now common for the chemical form of the element to be monitored, as well as the total concentration. Agilent's Atomic Spectroscopy instruments offer a solution for these measurements, providing sensitive and accurate trace metal analysis and simple speciation capabilities through proven links with HPLC and GC sample introduction. For manufactured goods and consumer product testing, WEEE / RoHS compliance and Pb in toys and children's products will be discussed.



Session 2
Today's Agilent - New Atomic Spectroscopy Solutions
for Environmental Laboratories

Learn how Agilent's expanded atomic spectroscopy portfolio and new application solutions are used in environmental laboratories. Applications utilizing Agilent's new range of AA, ICP-OES and ICP-MS products will be presented, with a focus on achieving accurate and reliable results in the wide range of sample types encountered in many routine environmental applications. The determination of metals in various environmental samples utilizing approved US EPA 200 and 6000 series methodologies will be discussed, including a preview of the upcoming ICP-MS SOP for toxic metals in FGD (flue-gas desulfurization) wastewaters. FGD wastewaters represent among the most difficult sample types ever analyzed by ICP-MS, and we will present recent method and product developments which ensure that accurate results can be reported for these extreme high-matrix samples.



Session 3
Analysis of Metal Impurities in Pharmaceutical Ingredients
in Preparation for USP <232>/<233>


Determination of toxic inorganic analytes in pharmaceutical products has been entrusted to a 100 year old colorimetric method (USP<231>), which hinges on color comparison of metal precipitates. The reality is that in the presence of highly advance instruments, which would allow for extremely accurate, quantifiable and reproducible analyses; it is hard to justify using such an archaic method as proposed by USP<231>. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has thus set out to revamp the method by introducing three new chapters, two of which are specific to pharmaceutical ingredients (USP<232>/<233>) while the third specifically sets regulation for analysis of dietary supplements (USP<2232>). Although more than a handful of analytical instruments are available for analysis of dietary and pharmaceutical ingredients, USP<233> specifically prescribes the use of inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) or inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES). Here we present the analysis of a variety of pharmaceutical ingredients with the Agilent 7700x ICP-MS and 720ES ICP-OES yielding data in accordance with USP<232>/<233>.

Dr Doug Shrader: Biography

Doug received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Montana State University in 1973. His research under Dr. Ray Woodriff involved improvement and application of constant temperature graphite furnace AA instrumentation. Doug joined Varian Analytical Instruments as a field applications chemist in 1973. He managed Varian's Atomic Absorption Resource Center and held positions as AA product manager and marketing manager. Since 1995, Doug has been involved with AA, ICP and more recently, ICP-MS marketing. He currently is focused on market development, promotion and support for Agilent atomic spectroscopy products.

With four decades of experience, Doug has worked extensively on methods development, particularly for graphite furnace and vapor generation techniques. Innumerable invited and submitted papers have been presented at regional, national and international scientific meetings on various AA, ICP and ICP-MS topics.

Doug is a member of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy and the American Chemical Society. He was presented the Chicago SAS Distinguished Service Award in 2001 and the National SAS Distinguished Service Award in 2002

Mr Stephen Wilbur: Biography

Mr Wilbur is currently responsible for worldwide environmental marketing of ICP-MS products for Agilent Technologies Chemical Analysis Solutions group.

Among his duties are the establishment and maintenance of research collaborations within academia, industry, and government to develop new applications for ICP-MS. Steve has been involved with ICP-MS at Agilent since the introduction of the 4500 ICP-MS in 1995. During that time, he has been instrumental in hardware, software and applications development.

His accomplishments include development of the ICP-MS EnviroQuant software and the Integrated Sample Introduction System (ISIS) as well as contributions to the Intelligent Sequencing Software and GC interface. Steve's primary interests lie in hyphenated ICP-MS techniques for elemental and molecular speciation.
