AOX Seminar

SciMed Seminar

Thursday, March 7th 2024

SciMed is pleased to announce its latest seminar, on the analysis of AOX in waste, which will take place at the SciMed Office in Stockport on Thursday March 7th, 2024.

This course will provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects and developments within the new-to-the-UK ISO 9562 legislation coming into force for AOX measurements. It will cover the fundamentals of sample preparation, sample combustion and analytical measurement, and will also have a hands-on session running a Multi X EA 2500 AOX analyser.

Our speakers

David Bellis square

David Bellis - Application Support Scientist

David has over 25 years’ of experience in ICP-MS and other analytical techniques, working in academia, research, and industry. He joined SciMed in October 2020 specialising in Analytik Jena instrumentation.

Matt Allen - Product Manager from SciMed

Matt has been involved in the analytical industry for almost 25 years, and in that time has held several roles covering applications and training, as well as sales management and development.

What will I learn?

We will be focussing mainly on the waste industry and the course will explore different options and optimisation techniques that should be considered when looking to perform this type of analysis.

We will look at how important the sample preparation is, compare different approaches, consider where errors and faults can occur and how we can overcome them.
