Analysis of Metals and Trace Elements
Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy
ASTM E 1479
Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES) is a major technique for elemental chemical analysis of various kinds of samples, such as steel, alloys, ceramics, polymers, oils, as well as environmental and aqueous samples.
Our 2005 ICP-AES VARIAN VISTA-MPX simultaneously utilizes ICP coupled with CCD detector technologies. The characteristics of the ICP-AES are low detection limit, high accuracy and precision, relative freedom from matrix interference and high sample throughput. It is one of the most widely used techniques and is often the first line of attack in producing high quality, elemental analysis of metal, organic, environmental, archaeological, geological and biological samples. The ICP-AES at ITL can determine major, minor and trace element concentrations in a variety of matrices, and is often the most appropriate and cost effective method for many applications. ITL is dedicated to producing accurate and precise data, suitable to its customers’ needs.
