Elemental Analysis of e-Cigarettes:
Pushing the Boundaries of ICP-MS Analysis to a New Level

Separation Science, in collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific, offers an on-demand webinar that addresses the various challenges of trace elemental analysis in Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems by ICP-MS.

Duration: Approximately 50 minutes

David Fishwick (Senior Project Scientist, Broughton Nicotine Services, UK)
With 3 years of experience within the Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) sector, David has worked with ICP-MS for the analysis of trace metals within these devices. He also has experience in IC and LC-MS/MS.

James Hannan (Thermo Fisher Scientific, UK)
In 2014 James joined the Thermo Fisher Scientific UK sales support team, providing applications support for trace elemental and discrete industrial analyzers. James is now the European applications expert for the Trace Elemental Analysis and the discrete industrial analyzer range of products.

This presentation focuses on trace elemental analysis associated with the growing industry of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), more commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, using ICP-MS. Many of the products involved in the production of
e-cigarettes and consumables associated (such as e-liquids) present an analytical challenge because of their novel nature and the range of matrices involved - these include organic liquids, solids and aerosols. In addition given the nature of human interaction with
e-cigarettes ensuring consumer safety is paramount, and this drives analytical methodology towards lower limits of detection and ensuring the highest levels of specificity.

This webinar focuses on developing robust methods for this analysis using both single and triple quadrupole ICP-MS technology.

By viewing this presentation you will learn:

  • How to address challenges when analysing novel and complex matrices
  • How to ensure your method is fit for purpose even when pushing analytical boundaries
  • How both single and triple quadrupole ICP-MS can be used to address different challenges
