Optimize Laboratory Productivity through System Utilization Monitoring and Business Analytics

System utilization is often recognized as the key to unlocking operational insights for effective laboratory productivity. However, the definitions of system utilization can vary greatly and can have dramatically different use models. Join us to discover the many ways to look at and interpret utilization data as well as other asset management data to build a complete picture of your lab. In this webinar, we will cover the multiple sources of utilization data, review the benefits and limitations of each...

How does ICP-MS Improve Productivity and Profitability in the Environmental Laboratory?

Recent developments in ICP-MS have extended its applicability well beyond clean environmental sample types such as drinking water. More complex and variable sample types such as wastewater, soil and sediment digests and other environmental matrices with high levels of total solids are now routinely analyzed. This presentation will discuss hardware choices and optimization approaches that maintain high productivity and ensure quality data when analyzing difficult matrices.

The idea of a common electronic language is linked closely to the growing need for open-access databases. Now, a team at the University of Geneva in Switzerland, has devised a common electronic language that gets around the problem of different laboratories using different language in conjunction with organic compounds and their nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic data.

Sea urchins are not renowned for the visual acuity, indeed they don't have eyes, as such, but they can perceive light. A new study from Lund University using X-ray tomography and electron microscopy shows that they can see with their feet.

Researchers in the Czech Republic have used cold vapour atomic absorption spectroscopy (CV-AAS) to re-analyse mercury levels in well-studied soil samples to discern whether or not levels of this important elemental pollutant are stable in long-term storage.
