Serendipity or ‘accidental discovery’ is the absolute epitome of innovation. Vaccination, penicillin and Viagra are some famous examples of serendipitous discoveries, but did you know that the splitless injection technique, stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) and selected ion flow tube MS (SIFT-MS) were also discovered by clever accident? The webinar will provide basic insights into the process of innovation and how to implement it successfully using principles and tools from Lean thinking.Read More
This webinar will provide an overview of the analysis of vanillic acid and p-hydroxybenzoic acid at parts per trillion levels in polar ice core samples using IC with MS/MS detection. Measurements taken from a Siberian ice core will be shown as an example application of this method.Read More
