Supporting UN’s “Ocean Decade” via Direct Trace Elemental Analysis of Seawater


With rising global populations and increasing industrialization of both land and sea, the contamination of seawater by metals and metalloids is of growing concern and needs to be monitored. However, due to high total dissolved solids (TDS) in this matrix, seawater is considered one of the most difficult sample types to analyze for the presence of heavy metals and other trace elements.

During this webinar, you will learn about recent methods for the direct analysis of trace elements in seawater, leveraging the benefits of proven ICP-MS technologies:

  • For the analysis of high TDS samples, such as seawater, uncover unique approaches to minimizing matrix effects and increasing versatility while reducing sample turnaround time and delivering accurate and precise results.
  • For the added challenge of even lower trace elements, such as those of open-ocean seawater, discover the benefits of multi-quadrupole ICP-MS technology for outstanding interference removal and how this translates to exceptional detection limits.
  • Understand how these innovative technologies will help regulators track and measure their ability to meet the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.
