The spICP-MS: data analysis, hands-on training workshop will be held in Wageningen, The Netherlands from 10 to 12 January 2017. Two days workshops (day 1: lectures, day 2: computer exercises) will be supported by optional hands-on training on the ICP-MS instruments (PE Nexion 350D and Thermo iCapQ). The workshop will focus on handling and analysis of single particle ICP-MS data, analysis strengths and limitations. The spICP-MS data will be analysed with the help of RIKILT SPC (Excel based single particle ICP-MS calculation spreadsheet) and Nanocount software.
Audience: PhDs, Postdocs, researchers on nanocharacterization. The number of participants is limited to 50 for the lectures, and 10 for the on hands-on training (20 in case of particularly high interest).
