Description

Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), is a well- established analytical technique that used to detect the presence of trace metals in an analyte. The analyte sample is introduced into the ICP as an aerosol that is carried into the center of the plasma - ionized argon gas. The superheated argon gas excites ions and atoms of the element in the sample that emits detectable amounts of light at characteristic wavelengths. The intensity of the emission is propor tional to the concentration of the element detected.

The ICP-5000 can be programmed for both radial and axial view. The less sensitive radial view was preferred for the higher concentration elements such as aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and sodium in environmental samples while the more sensitive axial view was preferred for the lower concentration elements such as the transition series. The most effective systems of ICP-5000 allow the plasma to work in dual view in a single analysis, providing the highest upper linear ranges and the best detection limits.
