Monday Morning Session: Environmental/Food Analysis

May 02, 2014

3C. Monday Parallel Session: Environmental/Food Analysis
Room: HEC-C, Hilton Exhibition Center, 2nd floor of the Hilton

Environmental and food analysis concerns have been a hot-button issue for several years. Scientists are continually working to improve the methods and equipment used for analysis in these fields, so this technical session will surely be of high interest to many. This session will start late Monday morning at 10:50 a.m. and will be chaired by Stephen Weber of the University of Pittsburgh.

The first talk on the schedule is “Speciation of Trace Arsenic Compounds in Drinking Water with a Counter Flow Electrokinetic Supercharging Technique of Capillary Electrophoresis.” Doo Soo Chung from Seoul National University in Seoul, South Korea will present this talk.

The second talk in this session will be given by Jason Weisenseel of PerkinElmer in Shelton, Connecticut. Weisenseel’s talk is titled “A New Fast and Sensitive HPLC-PDA Method for Analysis of Aflatoxins in Food Products that Eliminates the Need for Post-Column Derivitization.”

The third and final talk in this session, “Comprehensive Multi-dimensional Liquid Chromatography for Effect-Directed Analysis in Effluents and Surface Water,” will be given by Xiyu Ouyang of VU University Amsterdam in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Ouyang’s work is part of a collaboration with other scientists from Watercylce Research Institute (KWR) in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands and Waternet in Amsterdam.

After the session concludes, attendees are free to have lunch on their own. There are several “Vendor Technical Workshops” taking place from 12:15-1:15 p.m., but attendees were instructed to sign up in advance for these. The technical sessions will start up again at 1:30 p.m.
