Course title: New horizons in elemental analysis of nanoparticles and cells with ICP time-of-flight technology: From single particles to biological tissues

Highlight: This course will focus on inductively coupled plasma time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ICP-TOFMS) and its capabilities to perform multi-element analysis of individual nanoparticles and cells in a variety of different media. We will introduce the concept of fast high-resolution 2D and 3D imaging of nanoparticles and metals in biological tissues and whole organisms using laser ablation sampling techniques, focusing on the latest developments in this field. We will illustrate selected applications of icpTOF technology in environmental nanoscience, material science and cell biology and show how the complexity of multi-parametric information-rich TOF analyses can be reduced by applying state of the art hardware and software tools.
