Dr. Hakan Gürleyük, Technical Director at BAL, and Tamas Ugrai, Research Chemist, will both be presenting at the European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry, taking place February 19 – 24 in the Austrian ski resort town of Sankt Anton am Arlberg. The Winter Conference is the premier international conference for scientists working with plasma ion sources for atomic analysis, such as ICP-MS. Hakan will be speaking on the Determination of radium in natural waters using IC-ICP-MS after on-line preconcentration, and Tamas will be presenting on Reducing the risk of inaccurate results when quantifying trace elements in seawater using ICP-QQQ-MS. BAL is committed to supporting the research and development of new analytical methods and improved techniques supporting elemental analysis. If you are interested in receiving a copy of either of these presentations, please feel free to contact us after February 24th.

In contrast to the snowy slopes of Austria, Jamie Fox, BAL Technical Sales Manager, will be attending the Waste Management Symposium (WM2017) under the sunny skies of Phoenix March 5 – 9. This annual symposium is the world’s largest and most prestigious conference on radioactive waste management and DOE site remediation. You can find BAL’s radioactive materials license here, which allows us to accept samples with low-levels of radioactivity (or diluted samples from higher level sites). Contact us if you will be attending WM2017 and would like to meet with Jamie to discuss BAL’s capabilities serving this market!
