Outlining Common ICP Applications

Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) spectroscopy is a sensitive chemical analysis method for determining the chemical composition samples using an electromagnetically-charged apparatus. It uses gas flow techniques to collide nebulized liquid samples with extremely hot plasma, and mass spectroscopy equipment to analyze the ionization of gas particles flowing through the plasma channel.

XRF Scientific previously explored the processes and mechanisms of ICP spectroscopy in greater depth, but this article will explore some of the most common ICP applications in more detail:

Trace Element Determination

The primary ICP application is for the atomic determination of trace elements in liquid samples. Ionized particles are measured in an optical sample chamber ...

Spectrometer Calibrations from XRF Scientific

XRF spectrometer calibrations are crucial processes to maintain an instrument’s highly discerning levels of precision. The x-ray output in an XRF spectrometer is initially calibrated to minute degrees, ensuring the acquisition of precise optical results by a fluorescence detector. However, x-ray output tubes are subject to low levels of drifting that can severely impact the accuracy of results over time. Regular spectrometer calibrations are necessary to correct x-ray tube drifting and maintain precise measurement parameters.

ICP Solutions from XRF Scientific

Inductively coupled plasma (ICP) analysis involves ionizing analytes with high-temperature argon plasma and determining its elemental composition by analyzing the mass and charge of ionized particles. ICP processes are expensive and complex, requiring multiple instruments to maintain optimal experiment conditions and acquire resulting data. Such equipment includes spectroscopy systems, electromagnetic coils, and carefully prepared samples to ensure that analytes are high purity. If these stringent conditions are met, an ICP laboratory setup can detect almost any element from the periodic table at trace or major concentrations.

XRF Scientific offer complete solutions to support ICP laboratory processes. This article will explore how we can provide for your experiments in more deta...
