Elemental Analysis User Club

The elemental Analysis User Club was created in 1988 in France by the joint will of HORIBA Jobin Yvon and the users of its instruments. Since then, an annual meeting is organised jointly by HORIBA Jobin Yvon and a scientific committee composed by 9 users elected during the annual meeting.

The aim of this scientific committee is to prepare a program mixing science, applications and discussion in a pleasant atmosphere.

The last meeting in France was held in Massy (91) on March 31, 2011.

More than 80 people came and had a very interesting day. More than 90% want to come back in 2012!

In 2012, the main presentations were:

  • News in HORIBA Jobin Yvon presented by the Products Manager
  • Intercomparison test for nuclear waste
  • How to use the results of interlaboratory testing in a laboratory
  • Analysis of solids by ETV-ICP-OES
  • Limits of Quantification vs limits of Detection
  • Analysis of metals in organic matrix
  • 3D Metal, a new spectrometer for the analysis of metals
  • Micro-XRF

And the topics for the forum:

  • Maintenance of the ICPs
  • Spectral and chemical interferences in ICP
  • Specific functions of the ICP software
  • Analysis in organic solutions
  • C/S, O/N/H Analysers
  • 3D Metal presentation
  • Pulsed source for quantification by GDS
