High Resolution Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry is a technique used for elemental analysis of solutions and solid samples via laser ablation. The superior ionization of inductively coupled plasma source is combined with a magnetic sector multicollector mass spectrometer resulting in ultimate sensitivity.
The high mass resolution potential of a sector-field mass spectrometer can physically distinguish and separate an analyte from interferences by exploiting small differences in mass-to-charge. This means that almost all elements in the periodic table can be analyzed without the requirement for complicated reaction gases regardless of sample matrix.
The Thermo Scientific Element HR-ICP-MS has a large dynamic range of more than 12 orders of magnitude. As such, it can be used to measure matrix elements (%), traces (ppm) and ultra-traces (ppb). There are a wide range of applications that use HR-ICP-MS from geoscience research, environmental testing, process chemicals and semiconductor applications.
