Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, also called ICP-MS, is a multielement technique that accurately measures the concentration of over 80 elements in variety of sample matrices at milligram to nanogram levels per liter or up to parts-per-trillion (ppt 10-12). It uses high temperature plasma to break down the chemical compounds in the sample and mass spectrometry is used to detect and quantitate the ions
We use PerkinElmer’s state-of-the-art ICP-MS system to deliver the outstanding detection performance ensuring accurate and repeatable results. ICP-MS is most often used to analyze solid or liquid samples from water purity testing to a wide range of scientific, medical, or industrial materials. As the analysis rely on injection so the solid samples are dissolved into liquids prior to the analysis by acid digestion with hot mineral acids. We can analyze heavy metal contamination in drinking, processing, and wastewater. We provide our ICP-MS analysis services to the pharmaceutical industry, food products, naturopathic health care, geoscience and environmental studies, scientific research and many other consumer goods industries where elemental analysis is required.
