Moody students? Zinc deficiency could be to blame

Date: Jan 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Zinc deficiency has been suggested as one possible risk factor for the onset and progression of mood disorders. A study utilising flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) has been carried out to assess this hypothesis in adolescent female high school students.

Acrylamide assessment: Flame-grilled spectroscopy

Date: Nov 15, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Acrylamide is a toxic natural product formed by the Maillard reaction in some starchy foods. A quick and simple, and cost-effective method for its determination has been developed involving ion-pairing with fluorescein dye in the presence of nickel(II) ions at pH 9.0 and subsequent extraction for analysis by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS).

Journal Highlight: Effects of different strategies of mineral supplementation (marine algae alone or combined with rumen boluses) in organic dairy systems

Date: Nov 1, 2016

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The effects of marine algae and regular mineral supplements on milk production, composition and quality in organic dairy cattle were assessed with the aid of ICPMS.

Journal Highlight: On the distribution of trace element concentrations in multiple bone elements in 10 Danish medieval and post-medieval individuals

Date: Oct 3, 2016

Author: spectroscopyNOW

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.

Journal Highlight: Development of exact matrix-matching ICP-OES spectroscopy for the analysis of Cu and K in infant formula

Date: Sep 20, 2016

Author: spectroscopyNOW

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.
