PerkinElmer Launches Avio 500 ICP-OES

A new simultaneous ICP-OES instrument that provides multi-elemental inorganic analyses for high volume laboratories testing complex environmental, chemical and industrial samples.

30 mL ICP calibration standards

Inorganic Ventures now offers custom ICP and IC calibration standards in smaller, 30 mL volumes. They have up to a three-year shelf life in sealed transpiration control technology bag. The smaller volumes offer total cost savings, ship as non-hazardous, produce less lab waste, enable simplified inventory management and increase confidence by reducing the likelihood of contamination.


Designed to weigh and dispense borate flux for the preparation of glass disks for XRF and solutions for ICP. There are three different weighing modes and the smart flux flow software make the system adaptable to the user’s needs. The system is easy to use with an intuitive touchscreen interface and one-touch operation. No training is required nor are calculations required to determine flux weight in relation to sample quantity.


PerkinElmer describe the new Avio 200 as the smallest ICP-OES on the market.

Characterisation of TiO2 pigments in commercial foundation creams: a synergic use of the ICP-AES, square wave voltammetry and sedimentation FFF techniques

TiO2 is widely used as a sunscreen UV filter and as a colouring agent in all types of cosmetic products. TiO2 has recently captured the attention of the scientific community since its safety assessment has been placed again under consideration. Inductively-coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), square wave voltammetry (SWV) and sedimentation field-flow fractionation (SdFFF) are described in this article to characterise and quantify the TiO2 particles inside six commercial foundation creams.
