Join TOFWERK at WCPS 2024

TOFWERK is excited to participate in the 49th Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry from January 15 – 20, 2024 in Tucson, AZ, USA. This series of biennial meetings sponsored by the ICP Information Newsletter, features developments in plasma spectrochemical analysis.

Meet the icpTOF team at Booth #5 to learn more about how your research would benefit from high-speed mass spectral acquisition and simultaneous, all-element analysis with the icpTOF. 

See below for WCPS 2024 presentations that highlight recent application data with the icpTOF.
