The applications for trace elemental analysis are steadily increasing: in addition to classic fields like environmental and semiconductor analysis, more and more interest is emerging in trace elemental analysis in food, pharmaceutical, clinical analysis and material characterization, not to mention hot topics like the analysis of nano-particles. At the same time the requirements for lower detection limits, sample throughput, matrix robustness, and of course user-friendly instruments are increasing. ICP-MS can address the demand for the analysis of different sample types, particularly due to its high sensitivity, and this webinar demonstrates the wide range of applications of the most sensitive ICP-MS available, the Bruker aurora Elite.

What You Will Learn:

  • How the aurora Elite ICP-MS is designed to deliver up to 4 000 cps/ppt sensitivity
  • How Turner-interlaced coils ensure robust plasma conditions for complete matrix decomposition, without a plasma shield or guard electrode
  • High sensitivity delivers additional benefits such as fast scan speed/higher sample throughput due to shorter integration times and higher dilution factors for complex samples without sacrificing detection limits
  • High sensitivity enables the use of lower laser energy for smaller-spot-sizes when the ICP-MS is coupled to laser ablation devices
  • High sensitivity improves accuracy and precision for isotope ratio measurements – for liquids and solids

Who Should Attend:

Analytical chemists from industry, government and academic laboratories:

  • Anyone conducting analysis using ICP-MS for geochemistry, semi-conductor, materials science, nanoparticle analysis, food testing, pharmaceutical clinical analysis, environmental testing, drug discovery and related applications
  • Applications requiring precise and accurate single digit ppt quantification and the analysis of complex matrices, and isotope ratio analysis
  • Applications using laser ablation devices

Dr. Meike Hamester

Dr. Meike Hamester

Director ICP-MS Global Market Development
and Product Management
Bruker Daltonics


Meike Hamester’s passion for ICP-MS started at the early ‘90s at the University of Hamburg, Germany. During her thesis with the title ‘Minimization of spectral and non-spectral interferences using ICP-MS’ she got acquainted with the challenges of ICP-MS in the early stages. Having finished her thesis she moved from Hamburg to Bremen in Germany to work for Finnigan and its successor Thermo Fisher Scientific as the product manager for ICP-MS. In January 2012 Meike joined Bruker Daltonics as European director for ICP-MS. Meike is based at Bruker in Bremen, Germany where Bruker operates the application laboratory for ICP-MS.

Dr. René Chemnitzer started in 2002 with Laser ablation ICP-MS at the Max-Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids. After he finished his thesis he moved to Darmstadt and joined Varian as Application Specialist for ICP-MS. In 2010 he joined Bruker as Application Scientist for ICP-MS and is now working at the Bruker ICP-MS applications laboratory in Bremen, Germany.
