What is ICP-MS?

ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) is an analytical technique that analyzes for metals in solution at concentrations as low as ppb levels (part per billion or nanogram / mL) in solution. The metals must be in solution (typically dissolved in acid) for analysis. An inductively coupled plasma is a plasma that is ionized (energized) by inductively heating the gas with an electromagnetic coil, and contains enough ions and electrons to make the gas conductive. The plasma is sustained in a torch with argon gas. Most metals end up as single charged ions in the plasma. These ions are then pulled by vacuum into a mass spectrum detector. Since each metal has unique atomic masses, the number of ions detected at a particular mass will be proportional to the concentration of that specific metal. Comparison of the detector response for an unknown to that of a known standard (known concentration of a pure metal) can determine the concentration present in the unknown.
