Scanning unknown or suspect samples

Warwick Analytical Service (WAS) has introduced the Quantitative ICP-Scan, a new service that determines the levels of 67 different elements at low part per million making it suitable for analysing unknown or suspect contamination samples.

The 67 elements covered by this proprietary WAS ICP methodology range from Silver (Ag) through to Zirconium (Zr).

Quantitative ICP Scan

The WAS Quantitative ICP Scan Service provides information on elements present at 10-100 ppm right up to greater than 1%w/w. 

Measured intensities are compared to intensities of traceable standards to obtain the elemental levels in the unknown sample.

Multiple wavelengths have been identified for each element to avoid errors due to the spectral interferences commonly found when using only a single analytical wavelength.
