Webinar: Techniques and Tools for Trace Metals and Nutritional Food Analysis
With global concerns about food quality and food safety continuing to garner attention, it is important for both manufacturers and regulatory bodies to have robust analytical instrumentation and methods to ensure accurate and precise results. For the measurement of inorganic elements and nutrients, sample preparation can be of critical importance to the quality of the analysis. This webinar will discuss the process of sample preparation and analysis, the tools and techniques for the measurement of inorganic elements in food, and inorganic speciation of metals.
Robert Huber from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich has received a Starting Grant awarded by the European Research Council (ERC). The grant is worth 1.2 million Euros over a period of five years. The Starting Grants scheme is designed to support the work of outstandingly creative young investigators who are engaged in research at the forefront of their respective fields.
The first group of graduates of a new European Master's degree received their diplomas at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Geel, Belgium. The degree, “Measurement Science in Chemistry”, was based on training initiatives developed by the JRC's Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM).
Producing tightly focused beams of high energy X-rays, to examine everything from molecular structures to the integrity of aircraft wings, could become simpler and cheaper according to new research.
The eyes of sheep infected with scrapie—a neurological disorder similar to mad cow disease—return an intense, almost-white glow when they're illuminated with blue excitation light, according to a research project led by Iowa State University's Jacob Petrich.
The DASp seeks nominations for the 2011 Bunsen-Kirchhoff Award for Analytical Spectroscopy to honour preferably the work of young scientists from universities, research institutes or industry who made excellent contributions to analytical spectroscopy.
One of the main techniques for measuring and monitoring mental activity, functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), can often be impaired because a person’s hair gets in the way. A team of researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Texas at Arlington have developed a “brush optrode”, which provides increased sensitivity with fibre tips designed to thread through hair to enhance scalp contact.
Professor Robin Clark CNZM FRS, Sir William Ramsay Professor Emeritus, UCL, gave the University of Canterbury's premier biennial lecture, the Rutherford Lecture, in the Town Hall, Christchurch, New Zealand, on “Raman's legacy: Spectroscopy in the Cause of Art and Archaeology” on 29 September 2010.
We are pleased to introduce a new feature in Spectroscopy Europe: a Product Focus. This first Product Focus is on Raman Spectroscopy, and a number of companies have provided information on their key products, their applications and features.
