Event (334)

World Mining Congress (WMC)

03 June 2016  The World Mining Congress is a world mining event that takes place every 3 years. Lead by a secretariat with organizational status, it is associated with the United Nations and is located in the Central Mining Institute, in the city of Katowice, Poland. The event aims to promote and support, both technically and scientifically, the cooperation for the national and international development of mineral areas and resources; implement a global information network concerning mineral science, technology, economy, occupational health and safety and environmental protection.

Milk powder mineral content using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry

30 January 2015  Milk powder quality and nutritional value depends significantly on its mineral and salt content. Elemental analytical techniques such as X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) are valuable in determining the composition of a wide range of organic and inorganic materials which can be analyzed as solids, liquids, loose and pressed powders. In this webinar we present energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) as a rapid, non-destructive tool to quantitatively analyze mineral and salt content including sodium and magnesium in milk powder prepared as pressed powders.

Pharmaceutical elemental impurity analysis (USP<232> and ICHQ3D) following USP<735> X-ray fluorescence spectrometry

17 April 2015  Changes to the regulatory requirements for elemental impurity testing with the introduction of USP chapters <232>,<233> and the ICHQ3D guidelines is leading to an industry wide change in the approach to this analysis. In this webinar we introduce the new USP chapters and the ICH guidelines and discuss risk analysis and the need for testing. We will also introduce the new USP chapter <735> X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) and discuss the development and preliminary results for pharmaceutical calibration standards for elemental impurity testing. Finally, we will take a first look at XRF method validation using a model API.
