SPECTRO Webinar Spotlights Improved Laboratory Profitability Via Next-Gen Instrumentation

Share Article

During a June 8 webinar hosted by LabRoots, attendees will review common challenges in analyzing environmental samples — and pinpoint best-practice solutions to overcome them.

Olaf Schulz Product Manager for ICP-OES, SPECTRO Analytical Instruments; Dirk Wissmann Senior Product Manager, SPECTRO Analytical Instruments

In today’s heavily regulated industry, many environmental laboratories face an all-too-familiar dilemma. Regulators demand stricter elemental analysis requirements, necessitating instruments with higher precision and lower limits of detection (LODs). But at the same time, laboratory testing budgets remain static, or even decline.

To maintain profitability, environmental labs must improve sample throughput while simultaneously enhancing analytical performance. This webinar will explain how next-generation instrument technology — in combination with approved scientific methodology and appropriate sample preparation techniques — can help meet these challenges.

Sponsored by SPECTRO Analytical Instruments, the presentation will outline considerations for selecting the best solutions based on sample prep requirements. Participants will learn how to apply the latest analytical technologies to improve testing efficiencies while reducing cost.

Event speakers will be Olaf Schulz, a SPECTRO product manager for inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) technology, and Dirk Wissmann, a SPECTRO senior product manager for X-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology.

Schulz is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience in OES for materials analysis and testing. He’s currently responsible for strategic development of SPECTRO’s complete ICP-OES product line, including application development and product support. With a degree in engineering/physics, he began his career in the auto industry before moving to SPECTRO Analytical Instruments GmbH in 1989.

Wissmann is responsible for the strategic development of SPECTRO’s complete XRF product line, including application development and product support. His spectroscopy experience began with graduate work in physics at the University of Siegen: specifically, Fourier-transform spectrometry in the ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectral range in combination with inductively coupled plasma. His past 27 years at SPECTRO Analytical Instruments GmbH have included assignments in quality control, training, application development, and marketing.

LabRoots will host this informative webinar on Thursday, June 8, 2017, beginning at 8 a.m. PDT / 11 a.m. EDT. For more information, a list of continuing education credits, or free registration, click here.
