Perkin Elmer Elan-DRC-e ICP-MS spectrometer
Inductively Coupled Plasma- Mass Spectrometry is a multi-element technique which is used for trace elemental analysis in the ppt-ppm concentration range. Solutions are introduced in an axial argon plasma torch. Elements are ionized and are transferred to a quadrupole mass spectrometer through a set of sample and skimmer cones and a collision reaction cell (CRC cell) to correct for interferences. The quadrupole mass spectrometer is used as detector.
