Lab Water Hints and Tips Part 2: Optimal Handling of Purified Water [Sponsored]11/05/2016 Duration: 10min
Sponsor's Content: Following on our previous Dedicated Dialogue which discussed lab water contaminants and purification technologies, this Dedicated Dialogue will consider specific ways to handle and manage a lab water purification system and the product water from these systems in order to ensure consistent and reliable results.
UCT: A 30 Year Tradition of Excellence in Sample Preparation [Sponsored]11/05/2016 Duration: 20min
Sponsor's Content: Since its beginnings in 1986, UCT has evolved into a major competitor in the field of silica-based solid-phase extraction technology. The first to commercialize “mixed-mode” SPE products, 30 years later UCT is still optimizing sample analysis for forensic, pharmaceutical, clinical, environmental and agricultural laboratories. Michael J. Telepchak, founder and CEO of UCT, has served as a catalyst for its transformation from a novel technique to an industry gold standard. From fundamental chemistry to manufacturing and business development, he has born witness to all facets of the evolution of SPE and will speak on the impact it has made on the scientific community.
Hormone Analysis by LC–MS and Water Impact [Sponsored]11/05/2016 Duration: 10min
Sponsor's Content: The increased use of hormone-based therapies in health care throughout the world has resulted in hormones finding their way into municipal water supplies. The potential health risks of unintended consumption of hormones through drinking water have significantly increased the interest in identifying these compounds in our water supplies. The Milli-Q system incorporates a combination of purification processes that provides ultrapure, hormone-free lab water for the LC–MS techniques used for interference-free analysis of these contaminants.
Technological Developments in Ion Chromatography [Sponsored]11/05/2016 Duration: 19min
Sponsor's Content: In this podcast, we will talk to Dr. Arthur Fitchett, Director of Sales Training at Thermo Fisher Scientific. We will discuss recent advances in ion chromatography technology, what they mean for different types of IC analyses, and how they can improve results in your laboratory.
Looking for What We Know About and What We Don’t in Drinking Water [Sponsored]11/05/2016 Duration: 15min
Sponsor's Content: This podcast will explore the latest developments in the analysis of contaminants of emerging concern in drinking water. We will explore the requirements and results from the EPA’s Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule 3 program for Perfluorinated organics, and hormones. After a brief overview of the EPA analytical techniques, we’ll take a look at new technology and ask how it compares for both and if it can find compounds we didn’t even know were there.
Emerging Disinfection Byproducts in Drinking Water [Sponsored]19/04/2016 Duration: 14min
Sponsor's Content: This episode will focus on new developments involving our understanding of disinfection by products in drinking water. We will cover updates to toxicological compounds and advancements in new technologies to identify them.
