Microplastic determination - through selective microwave sample preparation 2020-10-13 by Milestone

Microplastic determination

through selective microwave sample preparation

The determination of Microplastics (MPs) has become a crucial aspect for the protection of the environment and human health. Considering the amount of plastics released in oceans every year, fish are one of the primary ways for humans to absorb MPs; therefore, adequate methods are required to be able to determine MPs in fish tissue in a fast and efficient way.
Milestone is proud to share with you a new study developed in cooperation with the Chemistry Department of Universidade Federal de Santa Maria (Brazil), in which a selective microwave assisted sample preparation protocol has been applied for the gravimetric determination of MPs in fish tissue.

The protocol was performed with Milestone’s ultraWAVE and it is cost effective and fast, with a duration of only 20 minutes.
These findings provides an answer to many laboratories with a new and straighforward approach to MPs determination.

We are pleased to share:

Published Scientific Paper

Application Report

To further discuss these findings, Milestone has the pleasure to announce a webinar event with one of the authors of the paper, Cezar A.Bizzi (Departamento de Química, Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, Brazil), held on November 18th, at 4pm GMT+2.

Event Overview:

The trend in polymer analysis by gas chromatography with mass spectrometry (GC­–MS) is toward using a generic high-throughput screening method with a single instrument that is capable of fast switching among multiple sample introduction techniques. This webcast will discuss the use of a versatile GC sample introduction instrument (Pyroprobe) from CDS Analytical with GC–MS to increase analytical throughput. Learn about the capability of the instrument under various configurations, as well as the application roadmap with specific case studies to pick the optimized sampling method.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the capability of Pyroprobe in evolved gas analysis, flash pyrolysis, thermal desorption, kinetics, dynamic headspace, heart-cutting and photochemistry

  • Learn about the Pyroprobe application roadmap to pick the proper technique

  • Learn about specific application examples in polymer analysis by using the Pyroprobe
