Elemental Analysis Service

ICP-OES is a trace-level and elemental analysis technique that uses the emission spectra of a sample to identify, and quantify the elements present.

Samples are introduced into the plasma in a process that ionises, desolvates and excites them. The constituent elements can be identified by their characteristic emission lines, and quantified by the intensity of the same lines.

Advantages of ICP-OES

– Large dynamic linear range
– Complementary analysis to techniques like XRF
– Simultaneous determination of multiple elements in each sample
– High sample throughput enabling the efficient analysis of large batches
– Low chemical and matrix interference effects

Other Elemental Analysis Method

Elemental CHN analysis uses microchemical techniques to determine percent weight of Carbon, Hydrogen and Nitrogen with milligram amounts of pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, petroleum products, polymers, inorganic and organometallic compounds in the liquid or solid state. It is a rapid, accurate, inexpensive composition and purity test and in conjunction with mass spectrometry and NMR data can be used to extrapolate the molecular structure of a compound.

How to choose an elemental analysis system?

Since so many techniques fall under the umbrella of elemental analysis, selecting the appropriate technique can seem daunting, especially considering the considerable overlap of capabilities. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses regarding detection limits, sample throughput, and multi-sample capabilities, so start here to find the best choice for your sample and element:

1) What elements can this technique measure, and what sample states (liquid, solid, gas)?
2) How many elements can be analyzed?
3) How many samples per day?
4) What’s the lowest analytical concentration range?
5) What about the detection limit?
