Arsenic speciation in foodstuffs and water in relation to legislative requirements

The course combines lectures giving a broad as well as a specific introduction to arsenic speciation with hands-on practice in the laboratory using HPLC-ICP-MS. The course emphasises the participants’s critical evaluation of all stages of the speciation procedure, and will discuss how to trace sources of error leading to poor accuracy.
