Description
Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) is one of the fastest
growing inorganic analytical technologies of the 21st Century. Newly developed
Time of Flight instrumentation is augmenting more traditional quadruple and
magnetic sector based instrumentation. Laser ablation, graphite furnace, liquid
and gas chromatographic interfacing has facilitated the analysis of a
significantly increased variety of sample types, enabling the determination of
up to sixty elements in samples as small as 10 micro-meters in diameter and
improved the resolution and detection limits of organo-metallic species
analysis in such matrices as foodstuffs, water, sediment and environmental
samples.
