Analysis of Aqueous Solutions by ICP-OES with Single Radial and Dual Side-On Interface Plasma Observation

Application Brief

Analysis of Aqueous Solutions by ICP-OES with Single Radial and Dual Side-On Interface Plasma Observation

The multi-element analysis of water is a major application for ICP-OES analyzers and this application report demonstrates the capabilities of the new SPECTROGREEN with Dual Side-On Interface for the analysis of metals and trace elements in waters in terms of sensitivity, precision, and accuracy. This application is described in several ICP-OES standard procedures such as US-EPA Method 200.7 or ISO 11885.

The report includes the line selection, detection limits and studies on precision and accuracy. In summary, the SPECTROGREEN with Dual Side-On Interface offers a simple, fast, accurate, precise and cost efficient method for the analysis of water demonstrated with the excellent recoveries achieved for NIST SRM 1640a.
