Device cleaning or the startup and shutdown of a flow cytometer are necessary, but also annoying processes that often cloud the fun of flow cytometry. These procedures take up time that the user could spend much more effectively doing something else. Learn in this application note how automated flow cytometers can manage these boring domestic tasks all by themselves.

Aluminium and brain disease: AAS analyses

thumbnail image: Aluminium and brain disease AAS analyses

Understanding the role of the neurotoxic, metallic element, aluminium relies on techniques such as atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) for the analysis of environmental samples, body fluids, and tissues. Such data from a 36-year, multicentre study suggest that aluminium has a role in Alzheimer's disease, dialysis dementia syndrome, and Down's syndrome in that it may contribute to the neuropathology.

A double‐spike method has been developed for measuring Cr stable isotopic composition using MC‐ICP‐MS that will be suitable for a range of geological rock samples with a wide range of variation in chemical composition.

Electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS) has been used to determine arsenic concentrations in honey samples. The samples were prepared using a dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) method developed based on the application of a magnetic ionic liquid (MIL) to create an extractant phase.
