Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy – ICP-AES

Equipment
ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometer) Horiba Jobin-Yvon, France, Ultima, model equipped with a 40,68 MHz RF generator, Czerny-Turner monochromator with 1,00 m (sequential), autosampler AS500 and CMA (Concomitant Metals Analyzer) for the determination of Hg, As, Se, Sb and Sn, in the ppb range, simultaneously with other elements.

Sample
The samples are analyzed in aqueous solution. The volume required depends on the number of elements to be determined. At least 1 ml of solution per element is required for analysis. In case of method development it will require a minimum of 10 ml solution per element.

 The applicant should directly contact the responsible for the equipment to clarify all the issues concerning the analysis. The equipment is operated only by the technician in charge. If requested it is permitted direct contact with the equipment along with a brief technical/theoretical description accompanied by practical demonstration of operation.

Delivery and reception of samples

  1. Samples must be properly identified indelibly and must be delivered properly packed.

  2. The delivery of results will be made exclusively by e-mail in PDF format, sent simultaneously to the applicant and responsible.

  3. The remainder of the samples will be stored in the laboratory over a period of 15 working days after completion of the analysis, after which will be eliminated.
