Inorganic Ventures Hosts ICP Operations & Techniques Conference to be Held September 22, 2015

Inorganic Ventures invites all those interested in elemental analysis and atomic spectrometry to the ICP Operations & Techniques conference on September 22, 2015, held inside the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center.

The robust, one-day conference features two presentations from keynote Robert Thomas, principal of Scientific Solutions, providing insight on how to select a commercially-available ICP-MS system and single particle ICP-MS for the characterization and study of nanoparticles in the environment. Joining Thomas, Inorganic Ventures’ resident Ph.D.s Paul Gaines, Brian Alexander and Lesley Owens will cover topics ranging from basic sample preparation, to precision measuring and statistical methods. Additionally, the ICP Operations & Techniques conference includes an opportunity to tour the world-class Inorganic Ventures headquarters for an inside look at what has made the 30-year operation a success since opening in 1985.

“We consider our operation, analysts and Ph.D.s among the foremost experts on atomic spectroscopy and various ICP processes,” Ph.D. and CEO of Inorganic Ventures, Paul Gaines, said. “We look forward to gathering a community of ICP experts together in one room and sharing in everyone’s experience and expertise to continue to drive our industry forward.”

With 40 years experience in elemental analysis, keynote Robert Thomas provides conference attendees expert advice on choosing the right commercially-available ICP-MS system for their laboratory, as well as a prospective on single particle ICP-MS for the characterization and study of nanoparticles in the environment. Thomas’ consulting company, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland, serves the application, training and scientific writing needs of the atomic and mass spectroscopy user community. Throughout the last four decades, Thomas has written more than 80 technical publications covering a wide variety of analytical chemistry topics, including a 15-part tutorial series on Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS), entitled A Beginners Guide to ICP-MS, published in Spectroscopy magazine. He recently completed his third textbook entitled Practical Guide to ICP-MS: A Tutorial for Beginners. He has an advanced degree in analytical chemistry from the University of Wales, UK and is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) and a Chartered Chemist (CChem).
