Nikita Sobolev received the prize for the best poster report from the Norwegian Chemical Society at the IX Conference on Spectrochemistry in Plasma
Junior researcher at the arctic biomonitoring laboratory of NArFU Nikita Sobolev took part in the 9th Conference on Spectrochemistry in Plasma (9TH Nordic Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry) organized by the leading scientist of the Laboratory of Arctic Biomonitoring Ingvar Tomassen.
At the conference, Nikita Andreevich presented a poster presentation on the topic “Analysis of the distribution of scattered elements by biological paths on the territory of the European zone of the Russian Arctic using mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma” ( icp-ms technique).
The paper presents the main results of the laboratory research in the field of analysis of the content and accumulation of toxic elements in the main types of fish consumed by the indigenous peoples of the Nenets Autonomous Region. The work received a prize for the best poster report from the Norwegian Chemical Society.
The conference also heard workshops on the elimination of isobar interferences in application to mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-MS), as well as searching and eliminating contamination from various external environmental factors in the process of working with ICP-MS. These skills will be used to improve the quality of the data and reduce the uncertainties of the research results.
The conference also presented the activities of the laboratory as a whole and established scientific relations with representatives of research institutes in Norway, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands and Denmark.
