ICP-MS Application Specific Setup: Boost Your Knowledge

by | Apr 17, 2023

Want to improve your knowledge of ICP-MS application specific setup? Learn about configuring your ICP-MS for a range of specific use cases.

Are you working with ICP-MS and looking for guidance on application setups? Separation Science has collaborated with the experts at Agilent to provide a video tutorial series to help you boost your ICP-MS skills. In the second tutorial in the series, instructor Gareth Pearson teaches the fundamentals of performing analysis in a range of applications, such as analysis of aqueous samples and organic solvents.

Through this tutorial, you will learn how to configure your ICP-MS sample introduction for:

  • Routine analysis with aqueous samples
  • High Total Dissolved Solid (TDS) containing samples (high matrix samples)
  • Organic solvent analysis
  • Samples with hydrofluoric (HF) acid matrix in solution

Run time: 20 minutes

There are a total of four tutorials in the series, with the remaining modules covering ICP-MS sample introduction, ICP-MS speciation, and laser ablation (LA) ICP-MS.
