Teaching, research, and industrial labs that use ICP-MS have always had to accept certain limitations on their metals analysis – limited tolerance to high dissolved solids, and a dynamic range that is ideal for trace analytes (sub-ppt) but is unable to reach above a few 100s ppm for major element analysis. No longer!
Recent advances in ICP-MS technology, such as ultra-high matrix introduction (UHMI), allows the direct analysis of samples matrices that contain up to 25% total dissolved solids (TDS), such as saturated brine and hypersaline lake water. Further technological advances such as a new ion lens, revised interface vacuum configuration, and novel orthogonal detector system (ODS) combine to deliver both higher ion transmission and lower background. The result is significantly improved signal to noise, lower detection limits, up to 11 orders dynamic range (0.1cps to 10Gcps), and the ability to measure major elements (% levels) to trace elements (sub ppt) in the same run.
