Inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) is an analytical technique that is used to identify the atomic composition of a sample. In this article we will explore how the technique works, what it tells us, strengths, limitations and common problems, and how it compares to other techniques in this analytical niche.
In this article, we take a look at what gas chromatography is, how it works and how to interpret output data. Its combination with mass spectrometry and the use of multiple dimensions are considered, and strengths, limitations and common problems are discussed.
Learn about the challenges of trapping and collecting aerosols without contaminating the sample, and how best to validate the process using standard methods developed by the tobacco industry for electronic nicotine delivery systems.
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is a flexible chemical analysis method that can be tailored to meet the demands of a wide variety of industries. In this article, we explore how it works, what it tells us, it's strengths and limitations and how it compares to other techniques in this analytical space.
THC levels in resins have risen by nearly 25 percent over the past 50 years, according to researchers.
This three-part series will take a closer look at the real-world, practical assessment of Colorado’s intent to implement these new regulations and their implications for other states that will inevitably follow suit.
With the cannabis industry’s increasing acceptance and regulation, mass spectrometry has also become a technique near-indispensable to the analytical scientists working within the cannabis testing sector.
