Fast Concentration Determination Through Simultaneous Concentration Curve and Unknown Sample Acquisition
The newly released Cary 3500 represents a huge leap forward in UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer technology. Its unique modular design affords dedicated application specific modules, imparting vastly superior performance compared to traditional sample compartment mounted accessories. Multicell modules with 8 cells have no moving parts at all, drastically decreasing wear and tear associated with regular use. Said modules can also scan all 8 cells simultaneously, allowing concentration curve and sample acquisition to be done in an instant. It is now possible to instantly reacquire concentration curves with each unknown sample set, thereby eliminating any uncertainty with regards to using old concentration curves over extended periods of time.

Additionally, the Cary 3500's lightning fast monochromator scans up to 150,000 nm / min, producing spectra from all 8 cells simultaneously in less than half a second. No revolutionary spectrophotometer would be complete without a fantastic light source, and the Cary 3500's hyper fast 250 Hz xenon flash lamp provides exceptionally light output and exceedingly long lamp life.

Come see what the "xenon buzz" is all about!

Optimizing your ICPOES for analysis of Brine Solutions
Many applications call for the analysis of hypersaline or brine solutions for trace constituents.  We will discuss design benefits of the Agilent 5110 that make undiluted analysis of brine solutions possible as well as sample introduction and instrument condition settings that make low ppb analysis possible in brines of up to 25% dissolved solids.

A Walk Around the Intuvo 9000
This presentation will introduce you to the Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC. We will open the door and show you how the Intuvo is unique from any other GC. We will demonstrate the built in features that will enable you to do your own maintenance with more confidence, and in less time than traditional GC’s. Lastly, we will show some chromatographic comparisons between the Intuvo and the 7890 to illustrate the ease of method translation from a traditional GC to the Intuvo.

Quality Control of Bulk Material by FTIR Onsite and In-lab Characterization
Raw material identification (RMID) or verification is a common QA-QC practice in industry with tremendous impact on customer safety as well as speed and cost of production. RMID has become an important application field of FTIR spectroscopy. Today’s RMID can occur either in the field and in-lab, which raise new challenges for the FTIR instruments and software. Agilent’s compact and portable FTIR spectrometers provide a complete product portfolio with versatile sampling interfaces and spectral process capabilities, which can offer great convenience, stability and high-throughput solution to the RMID applications. This online seminar provides a comprehensive introduction to the FTIR testing technology in the RMID applications.

Updating Old Methods, Is the Gain Worth the Pain?
Improving an existing method is an opportunity to save time, money and sample. Whether you’re developing a new method or updating an older one, there are several questions to consider, including:
  • Is the goal to reduce analysis time and/or improve resolution?
  • Is the method isocratic or gradient?
  • What HPLC parameters will be key to success?
  • What are the column options and will they work with your instrumentation?

    Modernizing a legacy method, whether it’s a reference method from the USP, AOAC, or EPA or an internal one, can simplify testing and improve accuracy, ruggedness, and sample throughput.

Characterization of Elastomers by Thermal Analysis
TA is used for the characterization of elastomers whose properties are temperature-dependent
Characterization of elastomers

Thermal analysis is an excellent method for the characterization of elastomers because their properties are strongly dependent on temperature.
Elastomer behavior

Elastomers can be stretched or compressed but return to their original dimensions or shape when the applied stress is released. The term elastomer is derived from the words elastic polymer and is often used interchangeably with the term rubber.

At ambient temperatures, elastomers are relatively soft and deformable. Their main industrial uses are for seals, tires, engine mounts, and flexible molded parts.
Characterization of elastomers by thermal analysis

DSC is used to measure events in which a change in enthalpy occurs. These include the glass transition, reaction enthalpy, vulcanization reactions, melting, crystallization, and thermal stability.

TGA measures weight changes and is widely used for the analysis of elastomers. The main applications have to do with compositional analysis, fillers and additives as well as chemical reactions such as decomposition, oxidation and vulcanization, and last but not least evaporation, desorption and vaporization.

TMA and DMA are used to measure the mechanical behavior and properties of materials. TMA applications include expansion, shrinkage, softening and the glass transition. DMA is the method of choice for characterizing the viscoelastic behavior of materials, the glass transition, and the frequency-dependence of effects.

Determination of the Geographic Origin of Spices Using ICP-OES, ICP-MS, and Mass Profile Professional
Competitive advantage within the food industry has led to fraudulent activities like intentional counterfeiting, substitution, adulteration, or mislabeling/misrepresentation of their ingredients. Many of these tricks go unnoticed by consumers and regulating government agencies due in part to the lack of standardized methods for identification. This highly specialized problem results in inferior products entering the marketplace and skewing price points for legitimate goods.  For origin-driven products like spices, food fraud has highlighted the need for a way to defend claims of geographic origin. One good example of this is Madagascar vanilla, price per kilo has vaulted from €42 in 2012/13 to €340 in 2016/17, this leads to potential counterfeiting, substitution, etc from bad actors in the food industry.
