Nakul Toshniwal, Managing Director, Toshvin Analytical; Yoshiyuki Fujino, Managing Director, Shimadzu Analytical India and Tsuyoshi Tsuchibuchi, General Manager Spectroscopy, Shimadzu Japan were present at the event.
Reportedly, the new ICPMS-2030 is designed to meet the challenging analysis requirements in pharma, food, clinical and environmental applications, and particularly suited for complying with USP 232/233 and ICH* Q3D guidelines for elemental impurities in pharma products. The ICH Q3D specifies allowable limits of daily intake of 24 elements of toxicological concern, and requires high sensitive and high precision measurement of such elements.
