ICP-MS Analysis of Trace Metal and Inorganic Materials

ICP-MS InstrumentInductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) is a technique routinely used to analyse trace levels of a wide range of inorganic elements.  The ICP-MS allows for the detection and quantification of elements with atomic mass ranges 7 to 250.  This covers Lithium to Uranium.  The typical detection limits are in the parts per billion (ppb) range and even parts per trillion (ppt) in some cases.

The ICP-MS analysis methods available at LPD Lab Services allow the detection, identification and quantification of a wide array of elements using a Perkin Elmer ELAN 6000 ICP-MS.

Applications of ICP-MS

  • Monitoring of trace metals in drinking water, ground water, rainwater, wastewater or industrial effluent streams.
  • Trace elements in product / raw materials or from washed or rinsed surfaces.
  • Analysis of additives and purity in metal alloys.
  • Analysis of low level contaminants in chemical products, beverages, foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals.
  • Analysis of soluble / leachable material from solid samples such as medical devices, polymers, PCB`s.
  • Analysis can be performed on a diverse range of sample matrices allowing accurate reliable results.
