ICP-OES Testing

Inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) testing identifies and measures the individual elements comprising sample materials. ICP analysis has numerous applications, having the ability to identify multiple elements in a sample with a single test. ICP has the capacity to analyze for individual elements in materials such as:
The ICP-OES test, also known as inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), quantitatively measures the elemental composition of solid or liquid samples.. The analysis involves testing a liquid sample by nebulizing a portion of the solution into an argon plasma. Solid samples are first digested using an appropriate acid solution to prepare for this analysis. ICP-OES is a powerful quantitative technique.
ICP-OES Uses
ICP-OES is a fast elemental analysis method capable of testing large sample batches in a short period of time. With ICP-OES, Applied Technical Services can test numerous metals, such as aluminum, nickel, titanium, copper, cobalt, stainless steel, and alloy steels,. ICP-OES has the ability to detect elements at trace levels. . The general ISO 17025 accredited method that ATS performs the analysis to is ASTM E1479 which can applicable to a multitude of material types. ICP-OES has numerous applications, such as QA/QC control, contamination testing, trace element analysis, forensic analysis, and failure analysis. This method’s diverse capabilities benefit numerous industries, from environmental testing to healthcare.
