ICP-MS: System Requirements Can Get Complicated

by Karyn Hede

ICP-MS-based analytical techniques cross disciplines and are used in the food, pharmaceutical, environmental, geochemical, nuclear, and medical fields to monitor test samples for trace elements and their isotopes.

The New Spectro Arcos

by SPECTRO Analytical Instruments

The new SPECTRO ARCOS analyzer represents a new pinnacle of productivity and performance for inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometers. 

ICP-MS for Homeland Security

by Mike May, PhD

The United States government—nearly 14 years after September 11, 2001— continues to invest heavily in homeland security. In fact, the president’s 2015 budget calls for US$38.2 billion for the Department of Homeland Security, and that equals more than 20 percent of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP).

How new ICP-OES spectrometer technologies substantially cut operating costs

by SPECTRO Analytical Instruments

Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) is used for elemental analysis of everything from soil and sludge to water and wastewater, plus various industrial process materials. In evaluating ICP-OES instruments, environmental contract laboratories may prioritize sensitivity and speed. Industrial research laboratories may emphasize stability and analytical precision. However, both agree on the importance of controlling costs.
