ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) analysis

ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) analysis provides fast identification and detection of trace metals content in chemical and petroleum samples. ICP instruments are often combined with mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for achieving even lower levels of detection and measurement of trace and ultra-trace metals.

Trace metals detected and measured by ICP and ICP-MS:
  • Aluminium, Arsenic, Boron, Barium, Beryllium, Bismuth
  • Calcium, Cadmium, Cerium, Cobalt, Chromium, Cesium, Copper
  • Dysprosium, Erbium, Europium, Gold, Gallium, Germanium
  • Iron, Iodine, Indium, Iridium, Lead, Lithium
  • Mercury, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum
  • Sodium, Nickel, Potassium, Phosphorus, Palladium, Platinum
  • Rubidium, Rhenium, Rhodium, Ruthenium
  • Silver, Sulphur, Antimony, Scandium, Selenium, Silicon
  • Tin, Tantalum, Thorium, Titanium ,Thallium
  • Vanadium, Tungsten, Yttrium, Ytterbium, Zinc
  • And other metals and metal species

    Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES Analysis)
    ICP-OES is a trace-level, elemental analysis technique that uses the emission spectra of a sample to identify, and quantify the elements present.

    Samples are introduced into the plasma in a process that desolates, ionises, and excites them. The constituent elements can be identified by their characteristic emission lines, and quantified by the intensity of the same lines.

  • High sample throughput enabling the efficient analysis of large batches
  • Simultaneous determination of multiple elements in each sample
  • Complementary analysis to techniques like XRF
  • Large dynamic linear range
  • Low chemical and matrix interference effects

    Typical Applications
  • Trace analysis of environmental soil and water samples
  • Assessment of metal ores for mass balances and process control
  • Trace metal analysis of any material that can be digested into an aqueous matrix
  • Boron and Lithia in glasses
  • Forensic analysis
  • Trace analysis of food and drink samples such as; metals in wine; and elements bound to proteins
  • Metal release testing of tableware

    Typical Industries using ICP-OES
  • Environmental testing
  • Food and drinks
  • Materials
  • Minerals
  • Glass, ceramics and refractories
  • Healthcare
