“Particle Contaminant Separation & Purification From a Nutritional Powder Supplement Using Light Microscopy”


Proceedings of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, Annual Meeting, Feb 2008


After attending this presentation, attendees will gain an understanding and appreciation of how light microscopy can be used to examine complex powders and to separate contaminants that are present at or below the detection limits of complimentary analytical techniques.

This paper will impact the scientific and forensic community by demonstrating a limitation to bulk analytical methods by demonstrating that purification of a complex powder mixture by hand picking contaminants can increase the analytical sensitivity exponentially.
