Trace Elemental Analysis Educational week - webinars


New to trace elemental analysis or in need of refreshing your knowledge? Then join our European trace elemental analysis application specialists for a week of educational and interesting presentations about trace element analysis technology and tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your instruments. Each session lasts 45 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of interactive Q and A. The presentations will not be vendor specific and will be relevant regardless of which trace elemental analysis instruments you use in your laboratory.

Over the course of the week we will be covering the following topics and content:
