Determining low levels of chromium in biological samples by ICP-MS using hydrogen as reaction gas
Chromium is a key ingredient in a number of metal alloys used for metal implants which, despite being coated with inert surface layer coatings, can break down over time as a result of biocorrosion. Leeching of metal ions from implants into surrounding bone, tissue, and body fluids can cause severe health problems. Although the toxicity of the metal is low, there is a potential health risk if ...
ERM-Application Note 7: Prolonging the validity of reference material certificates
Certificates of certified reference materials have limited viability, either because of unknown behaviour of opened samples or a general limitation of liability. In certain circumstances, users may ...

Blaine Air Permeability
Blaine apparatus measures the specific surface area of fine materials in square centimeters per gram of test sample. A quantity of air is drawn through a bed of definite porosity. The pore volume in the bed is a function of the size of particles, and determines the rate of air flow.
