“At Wake Forest, a private, independent research university in North Carolina, George Donati has been finding ways to increase the speed and accuracy of the analytical process.
Two of his new methods resolve an issue that often vexes chemists.
‘To determine analyte concentrations, you need to compare your results with a known value,’ Dr. Donati explains.
To ensure accuracy, analytical chemists may need to prepare a series of five or six standard solutions with increasing concentrations—a laborious process—in order to create a calibration curve. The curve helps them determine how much of their analyte of interest is contained in their sample.
But there’s a catch…” Read more at Agilent Technologies
