ICP-MS ANALYSIS LABORATORY
ICP-MS TRACE ELEMENTAL IDentification of ALUMINUM, IRON-BASED, NickeL, Cobalt, Copper, and Titanium Alloys, POLYMERS AND PLASTICS
ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma / Mass Spectrometry) is a very sensitive elemental analysis technique that provides very low detection limits for most elements present in a sample. Samples need to be in solution form, which requires solid samples to be dissolved. Test specimens are digested with a combination of acids appropriate for the chemical composition testing of the alloy.
The instrument is calibrated per use, using calibration standards designated by laboratory personnel, such as Quality Management. The calibration standards are matrix matched (Ni, Fe, Ti, etc.) to the samples being analyzed. Elements to be analyzed are added to calibration standards using NIST traceable solution standards. Calibration curves usually consist of 3-6 calibration standards.
An ICP-MS analysis can quantify a wide array of elements in many different matrices.
