National Arbor Day this year is April 27, 2018, and is a day to come together and celebrate the importance of trees.
The first American Arbor Day began in Nebraska City, Nebraska thanks to journalist, J. Sterling Morton. On April 10, 1872, the nature enthusiast was able to pull counties across Nebraska together to plant the largest number of trees possible in one day. It was estimated that more than one million trees were planted in Nebraska on what is now known as Arbor Day.
Arbor Day was named a legal holiday in Nebraska on April 22nd, same as Morton’s birthday.
During the 1870’s, other states began to pass legislation to observe Arbor Day, resulting in the day being practiced in schools nationwide by 1882.
However, as the world is changing, there needs to be a conversation about widening our environmental scope. Although analytical techniques and established regulated methods are not easily changed, more complex targets, larger lists, and a variety of sample matrices can create a daily challenge for environmental chemists.
By using the latest technologies and techniques in HPLC/UHPLC and sample preparation, laboratories and chemists are able to develop better approaches to make their work faster, cheaper, and easier.
Phenomenex is committed to supporting the environmental industry through a comprehensive product portfolio of sample preparation, HPLC/UHPLC, and LC-MS, columns and accessories, along with application and method development services to meet industry needs.
By utilizing our new LC-MS/MS Environmental Testing Applications Guide it will allow customers to select the appropriate sample prep technique for their key environmental requirements using QuEChERS, SPE, or On-line SPE.
The guide takes the customer also through several environmental applications to aid in method development as well.
