ICP-MS

INDUCTIVELY COUPLED PLASMA- MASS SPECTROMETER (ICP-MS)

Make: Thermo scientific X series II

Principle: ICP-MS is a multi-element technique that uses an ICP plasma source to dissociate the sample into its constituent atoms or ions. The ions are extracted from the plasma and passed into the mass spectrometer, where they are separated based on their atomic mass-to-charge ratio by a quadrupole or magnetic sector analyzer and detected by electron multiplier.

 

Strengths

Limitations

Excellent detection limits

Method development skill is required

Multi-element

Higher initial capital cost

High productivity

Some spectral interferences, but well defined

Very economical for many samples and/or elements

Limited to <0.2% dissolved solids

Wide dynamic range

Destructive technique

Isotopic measurements

 

Fast semi quantitative screening

 

Hybrid techniques LA-ICP-MS (solids) LC-ICP-MS (speciation)

 

Easily interpretable spectra

 
 

Applications of ICPMS in various fields:

A very wide variety of sample materials have been analyzed for most elements in the periodic table.

Some applications of solution ICP-MS include:

Geological studies: trace element analysis of rocks, sediments, soils and soil leachates mineral separates

Environmental analysis: trace element analysis of fresh, saline and sediment pore waters

Clinical analysis: trace element analysis of human teeth and bones, food, fish bones, blood.

· Metallurgical studies: semi-conductor materials, metals, archaeological materials, ceramics, etc.
