LGC scientists make significant contribution to JAAS speciation themed issue
14 Sep 2016
The Inorganic Analysis
team at LGC, led by Principal Scientist and Science Fellow Heidi Goenaga-Infante, have made a significant contribution to the latest themed collection of the Royal Society of Chemistry journal JAAS on speciation analysis
Heidi was invited to guest-edit this issue alongside Professor Gunda Koellensperger (University of Vienna), and has co-written an editorial on the current position of the field. This themed issue highlights the best research in speciation analysis and provides insight into emerging areas of this exciting field of research.
Work performed by researchers at L
GC (Susana Nunez, John Entwisle and Christian Deitrich) and their collaborators are featured in two original papers and a technical note. These publications demonstrate the range and quality of speciation work performed at LGC. They describe the production and application of a selenium-containing protein standard to support traceability of routine assays for clinical diagnostics, and detail methods for the measurement of chromium species in consumer products.
Heidi says, “It was a pleasure to be invited to guest-edit this topical issue of JAAS. The publications in this issue highlight the complexity of speciation analysis and demonstrate the role speciation measurements have to play in informing health and environmental safety.”
