Waste, Recycling and Environmental Seminar at SciMed 16th June 2015

SciMed are pleased to announce the next event in their series of industry focused seminars.

On the 16th June 2015 we will hold a technical seminar on the analysis techniques used in the waste, environmental and recycling industries.

The series of talks will focus on the different solutions that SciMed have to offer. To keep the content as informative as possible the focus will be on the techniques and what they can do for you rather than on the instruments themselves.

Date: Tuesday 16th June 2015
Start Time: Registration from 10:00 with the first talks at 10:30.


10:30-11:30 The great debate – you decide what’s best for you. XRF, AAS, and ICP as elemental methods for carrying out waste and environmental analysis – Chaired by Garry Smith

11:30-11:50 Automated solutions for TOC , Adam Rucklidge. This talk will look at the options avaibale for carbon analysis. We will cover how both liquid and solid samples can be handled and what information can be obtained with little operator sample preperation.
11:50:12:20 It’s a hot topic – Applications of bomb calorimetry and thermal analysis Dan Clarke.
1:00-1:15 Using portable NIR and Raman methods as material screening tools for selective waste sorting and recycling, Darren Machen
1:15-1:30 Reaction and dust Hazards while dealing with waste, Dave Dale
1:30 – 1:45 scH2O wet oxidation for waste destruction, Paul Vanden Branden This presentation will look at scH2O wet oxidation for waste destruction and how SciMed through their partners Separex can bring this technology to your company.
1:45 – 2:00 Ultrasonics to help with anaerobic digestion , Dan Clarke Biological treatment processes are widely used in the wastewater treatment industries. However, aerobic and anaerobic treatment processes can result in sludge that is difficult to treat and handle. Ultrasound provides novel techniques for the processing of such waste.

Registration now open.

The synopsis of the two days is as follows:

Day 1, 8th October 2014:

– Counterfeit Detection using NIR and Raman Spectroscopy

– High Temperature Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC)

– Particle size characterisation and Zeta potential analysis

– Supercritical CO2 applications

– XRF Sample Preparation methods

– Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy: Theory and applications

Evening of the 8th: Conference dinner free to all attendees.

Day 2, 9th October 2014:

– XRF: small spot analysis and elemental mapping

– Exploring the world of Calorimetry

– Powder Flow Characterisation

– Dust explosions: is your process safe?

– The application of ultrasonic homogenizers in both laboratory & industry

– Thermo gravimetric Analysis: a method for the masses


A special hotel rate has been arranged at the Didsbury Hotel, a high quality boutique hotel. SciMed users get to stay free of charge

Cell Culture Media Identification Using Handheld Raman

Cell Culture Media Identification Using Handheld Raman
Claire Dentinger, PhD, Rigaku Raman Technologies, Inc.
Cell culture media plays an important role in biopharmaceutical production. Handheld Raman provides the means for nondestructive, cost effective, and efficient analysis of complex cell culture media essential for high quality process control. A study of synthetic cell culture media concluded that use of a handheld Raman analyzer equipped with a 1064 nm laser wavelength revealed distinct results.
