Description: ICP-MS is a type of mass spectrometry that uses an inductively coupled plasma to ionize the sample. It atomizes the sample and creates atomic and small polyatomic ions, which then detected. It is a method for determining trace elements and isotopes using a mass spectrometry in a wide-variety of environmental and biological samples because of its low detection limits (parts-per-trillions level), high sensitivity, wide linear dynamic range, and ability to measure about 80% of the periodic table. ICP-MS is ideal for analyzing samples with low regulatory limits. The analysis involves testing a liquid samples by nebulizing a portion of the solution into an argon plasma. Solid samples first digested using an appropriate acid solution to prepare for this analysis. It is a powerful quantitative technique.
- Extended Dynamic Range capabilities provide the ability to detect high and low level elements in a single sample run.
- Simultaneous analysis of multiple elements.
- Two gas channels (Helium and Ammonia) combined with two modes of operation offer better interference removal, delivering better detection limits/ improved data accuracy.
- Extremely powerful technique for rapid elemental chemical analysis and isotope ratio measurement.
- EPA Method 200.8: Determination of trace elements in waters and wastes.
- QC/QA protocols for standard procedures.
- Practically every discipline where inorganic analytical support is required. This includes environmental, geological, biological, medical, nuclear, metallurgical (semiconductor industry), final products and nutritional studies.
- How mineral surfaces influence trace metal accessibility in aqueous environment
- Determination of trace elements in blood and serum.
