Webinar: Microwave Digestion Tips & Tricks: Organic Applications (Environmental)

View Page

Join us as we discuss the challenges associated with the digestion and analysis of organic samples by ICP, detailing environmental samples such as soils, sludges, and wastewater.

We will feature two presentations:

Bob Lockerman, Global Product Manager for CEM, will cover tips for EPA samples including 3051/a, 3052, 3015/a and Method 200 NPDES, along with the “rules” for sample prep, including max/min samples, ramp and hold times, and the difference between acid “leach” and complete acid digestion. Lastly, Bob will review predigestion techniques to drive off residual solvents in TCLP samples prior to digestion.

Justin Masone, Product Manager for Glass Expansion, will focus on sample introduction components geared towards particulates and incomplete digestions (e.g. 3051A), high TDS, HF, and high acid content. There will be an emphasis on lifetime of consumables, decreased maintenance, and sample throughput.

This webinar was previously recorded and is available for on-demand viewing.
