EPA 525.2 for the Analysis of Organic Contaminants in Water (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar reviews EPA Method 525.2 (SPE-GC-MS method) for the analysis of organic contaminants in drinking water. In order to achieve the low detection limits, water samples are extracted and concentrated prior to injection into the GC-MS. Automated systems remove the laborious, less accurate steps of vacuum systems and at the same time, save solvent and cost less overall. Speakers: Beau Sullivan (Santa Clara Valley Water District), Richard Jack (Thermo Fisher Scientific). Visit...

Validation of an In Vitro Digestive System

submitted by: KopfBolanz
The digestive process transforms nutrients and bioactive compounds contained in food to physiologically active compounds. In vitro digestion systems have proven to be powerful tools for understanding and monitoring the complex transformation processes that take place during digestion. Moreover, the investigation of the physiological effects of certain nutrients demands an in vitro digestive process that is close to human physiology. In this study, human digestion was simulated with a 3-step...
