SMART Chart Webinar Series: ICP-OES/MS

Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES)

Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)

Presented: Thursday, May 21, 2020

SMART-Chart-ICP-OES_MSLet's take a deeper dive into our SMART Chart!

This webinar will focus on Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS).

Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) based analytical techniques provide quantitative bulk elemental composition of a wide variety of sample types, including powders, solids, liquids, and suspensions. Solid samples are generally dissolved or digested using a combination of sample digestion strategies.

ICP-MS offers high sensitivity for a wide range of elements and is therefore especially powerful for quantitative determination of trace elements. ICP-OES is valuable for quantitative chemical analysis of major and minor elements in complex sample matrices.

Universally recognized as two of the most important solution-based analytical techniques, ICP-OES in combination with ICP-MS have simultaneous multi-element detection capabilities to determine the major, minor, and trace element concentrations in a wide range of sample types.

EAG Laboratories excels at using ICP techniques to find unique solutions to many materials characterization challenges.
