As soil samples often contain extremely complex coexisting substances at high concentrations, measuring the trace elements is particularly difficult.
This type of analysis requires a highly sensitive instrument, such as an ICP-mass spectrometer, that is relatively unaffected by the coexisting substances. Here, soil standard samples were analyzed using the ICPM-8500 ICP-MS.


ICP Mass Spectrometer


Featuring high sensitivity, simultaneous multi-element analysis, and simple qualitative analysis and isotope analysis, it is used in a wide range of fields, including tap water, river water, atmospheric dust, foods, pharmaceuticals, soils, and biology.
