Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS)

The Agilent 7700x ICP-MS is capable of measuring metal and non-metal elements in concentrations of parts per trillion.  The sample is ionised using argon plasma and the ions are separated and quantified using a quadrupole mass spectrometer.  ICP-MS provides precise data with short sampling time (roughly 30 seconds per sample).

To date, the BDC has used ICP-MS to analyse a broad range of samples including plant materials, fermentation media and fertiliser to quantify heavy metals and common environmental elements.
