There is a growing body of evidence showing that there are significant differences between some nanomaterials and their non-nanoscale counterparts. What those differences portend raises many new questions about their potential to cause harm to human health and the environment.
A new, simple sample-preparation method which results in minimal contamination has been developed for the ultratrace interference-free analysis of solar-grade silicon wafers using an ELAN DRC II ICP-MS.
Nanoparticles (NPs) have been of significant interest over the last two decades as they offer attractive benefits for drug delivery to overcome limitations in conventional chemotherapy. Nanoparticles can be engineered to carry both drugs and imaging probes to simultaneously detect and treat cancer. They may also be designed to specifically target diseased tissues and cells in the body. A number of nanoparticlebased cancer therapeutics have been approved for clinical use and/or are currently under development.
In the textile industry, the use of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles (NPs) is increasing due to their ability to provide UV protection, increase the hydrophilic nature of fabrics, provide antibacterial characteristics, and reduce odors. This work studies the release of TiO2 NPs from various commercial textile products which do not advertise that TiO2 NPs have been added.
This work has demonstrated the ability of the NexION 2000 ICP-MS to analyze both natural and drinking water samples in Standard (i.e. non-cell) mode, in accordance with U.S. EPA Method 200.8. Accuracy has been demonstrated through the analysis of several reference materials and spike recoveries, with stability of at least nine hours. Method detection limits allow for trace-level determinations, while the ability to selectively suppress user-defined isotopes also allows the measurement of analyte levels usually only possible by ICP-OES or Flame AA. The NexION 2000 provides a comprehensive solution to the challenge of U.S. EPA Method 200.8 and other drinking and natural water analytical requirements across the globe.
As with any new field of study, nanotechnology and the creation of ENPs may pose unintended environmental, health, and safety risks demanding further study. The traditional research process involving nanomaterials, however, requires many different types of technologies, including electron microscopes, great technical expertise, hours of manual calculations, and considerable investments in research to obtain a single piece of information.
In this work, we demonstrate that PerkinElmer's NexION? 2000 ICP-MS, with its unique RF generator and ion optics, coupled with the Syngistix? Nano Application Software Module, can be used to accurately measure and characterize NP sizes of 10 nm and smaller, both alone and in a mixture of NPs of various sizes.
Compliance with California’s Proposition 65 for the monitoring of lead (Pb) in calcium-based antacid medications and dietary supplements requires the analytical methodology to demonstrate detection limits below 0.05 μg/g in the solid material. The analytical capabilities of Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) make it the most suitable technique for performing lead determinations at these low levels on a routine basis.
Speciation studies can provide comprehensive information regarding ion mobility, bioavailability, and toxicity. Consequently, many modern labs are expanding their analytical portfolio to include HPLC-ICP-MS. For such studies, it is advantageous to have an intuitive, user-friendly system that meets the user requirements for automation, ultra-low baseline, powerful integration, and flexible data export. And no one offers a more integrated, versatile, and inert speciation solution than PerkinElmer - accelerate your speciation analysis with the NexSAR? HPLC-ICP-MS Speciation Solution.
Measuring the amount of metals in CNTs presents a challenge. High levels can be measured directly in the solid by several techniques, including XRF and TEM, while low-level analysis requires complete digestion of the sample prior to analysis by ICP-OES or ICP-MS.
Sample preparation is one of the most critical steps in your analytical process. Often accounting for 60% of your analytical timetable, it has a fundamental impact on laboratory throughput and analytical performance. Any errors within the sample preparation process will undermine the quality of your food data at all subsequent stages of your analysis. Here are five tips to improving your sample digestion for food samples.
Cisplatin, carboplatin, and oxaliplatin are the most widely used of platinum-based cancer chemotherapy drugs in the Western world. Cisplatin's effectiveness is due to its ability to bind to the DNA, resulting in DNA-platinum (Pt) adducts, which bend the DNA. The cells must then repair the DNA damage, otherwise DNA replication is blocked resulting in cell death. Many cancers are initially sensitive to platinum-based treatment, but patients frequently relapse with tumors displaying resistance to further cisplatin therapy.
