Project description

This project aims at the development of a new sample preparation method (Dispersed Particle Extraction) for analyte pre-concentration and a more efficient removal of matrix elements. At Ghent University, this method would be used in the context of the measurement of Fe isotope ratios in digested whole blood via multi-collector inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry.
