Full of excitement (nearly 30 kV) we have been waiting for our training participants on 05 September to then run this year’s two-day CE training first in the conference room in the hotel and then in our laboratory. Despite the work-intensive program, there was always room for individual consultation and exchange of experiences. All participants also made active use of the chance to practice cutting and installing capillaries in the cassette. We were very pleased with the open-minded and curious atmosphere and wish all of them much success with CE in their daily work.
And don’t forget: After the training is before the training! We also offer individual solutions for special topics in CE!
We now also offer analyses in the field of surface treatment (e.g. galvanics, electroplating, electropolishing) using Capillary Electrophoresis (CE). A price list with relevant analytes can be found here: https://www.ica-analytik.com/overview-of-our-services/
For example: Analysis of Chrome(VI) and Chrome(III) in a chrome bath
We used the upcoming strawberry season as an opportunity to take a closer look at the ingredients of various strawberries. A total of eight types of strawberries were examined, which differ drastically in weight, shape and color.
The results of our investigations applying capillary electrophoresis (CE) are summarized in a short paper published in Analytik-News (in German): Eine Erdbeere macht noch keinen Sommer
