ICP-MS Analysis of Trace Metals and Elements in Chemicals and Materials

ICP-MS Instrument - NexION 350DInductively 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 NexION 350D ICP-MS.

Applications of ICP-MS

  • Monitoring of trace metals and elements in drinking water, ground water, rainwater, wastewater or industrial effluent streams.
  • Quantified analysis of metals and impurities collected in dusts on filter membranes and other materials.
  • Trace elements in product / raw materials or from washed or rinsed surfaces.
  • Analysis of additives and purity in metal alloys.
  • Checking metallic species in recirculated hot and cold water system systems that may affect corrosion.
  • 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, PCBs.
  • Fully quantitative gallium and arsenic in swabs for health and safety semiconductor plant monitoring.
  • Semi-quantitative impurity checks in metalorganic precursor materials.
  • Contamination checks in organic chemical product
  • Low-level toxic metal screening in steels and mercury specialty alloys.
  • Screening of impurities in water treatment chemicals.
  • Impurity testing in Ultra-Pure process water in semiconductor raw materials production.
  • Fully quantitative investigation of metals in artificial bone materials.

Analysis can be performed on a diverse range of sample matrices allowing accurate reliable results.
