Perkin Elmer Optima 8000 ICP-OES with Prep3
Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optically Emitting Spectra, also known as Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), allows a researcher to analyze a solution containing material for specific elements, which is dictated by the user. Typically, this technique can detect a concentration of elements as low as 5 µg/L (ppb) in solution and as much as 100 mg/L (ppm). Almost all metal, transition metal, or metalloid elements that can be dissolved in an acidic solution can be quantified.
The Prep3 Optima 8000 uses only 2 mL of solution for the actual analysis and is a good option for groups with sample scarcity.
