Metal Contaminants

Speed up trace metal analysis

Metals, especially toxic heavy metals, can contaminate our air, water, and soil and damage public health. Bringing a brighter tomorrow means providing trace metal analysis capabilities that help you comply with regulations and ensure our drinking waters are free from toxic heavy metals, as well as to provide metal analysis solutions for product development, quality control, corrosion control, and other applications.  

Solutions for metal contaminants

Different metal analysis applications may need different instrumentation depending on the different regulations, concentration ranges, and detection limit. AA and GFAA are ideal economical instruments for analysis of a few elements, while ICP-OES and ICP-MS are used for multi-element analysis especially in a high throughput format. ICP-OES is suitable for tough matrices because it is tolerant for high total dissolved solids up to 30%. However, ICP-MS uses collision cell technology to remove polyatomic interferences, thereby lower detection limit to parts per trillion. With triple quadrupole ICP-MS and high resolution ICP-MS, advanced environmental and geosciences applications can be achieved accurately.
