Determine the composition of a wide variety of materials with excellent sensitivity

This technique combines a highly sensitive mass spectrometric detector (percent level to parts per trillion (ppt) range) with an inductively coupled plasma source. ICP-MS can analyze elements from Li to U excepting C, N, O, Cl, Br, I and S, with optimal detection range from 0.1 ppm to 1% wt, and sample size as small as 0.01 g. Sample can be introduced into the ICP-MS as a liquid or as a vaporized solid. Small amounts of sample material can be dissolved in solution or larger samples can be digested for bulk characterization. ICP-MS serves as an excellent semi-quantitative and quantitative instrument; it can also be used to determine the ration of two or more isotopes. A range of interference removal techniques are available to meet your analyses needs. Isotope dilution experiments can also be performed by ICP-MS too, which is often used to certify standard reference materials.
