Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)

ARDL offers spectroscopy using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). This test helps in determining the metals present in a material. ICP-MS specifically helps in analysis of the metals (suspended and dissolved) present in extracted solutions, stearic acid and water. The testing is helpful in recovering metals such as copper, nickel, lead, zinc, cadmium, iron, manganese, magnesium and calcium. Utilizing ASTM specifications, ARDL has the capability to determine up to 20 elements with a high analysis sensitivity. This test is helpful in analyzing compounds for inorganic species in extractables/leachables studies, analyzing ground water, surface water, and drinking water.
