Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is recognized as a key technique for the analysis of trace elements in a wide variety of sample types. However, using single quadrupole ICP-MS can result in unresolved spectral interferences and lead to biased or false positive results. This is especially true for monoisotopic or quasi-monoisotopic elements, such as arsenic, a key analyte in many regulated methods governing the safety of drinking water, foodstuffs or pharmaceutical products, for example.
Triple quadrupole ICP-MS systems allow for consistent interference removal regardless of the sample matrix and provide a significant improvement for detection limits of challenging analytes.
