ICP-MS helps scientists dig deeper into the world around us
For the clinical industry, the transition from atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) to inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) has been gradual over the past two decades
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.

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).
