Performance characteristics of the TotalQuant ICP-MS technique in element analysis

Prestatiekenmerken van een TotalQuant-elementanalyse met ICP-MS

Synopsis

TotalQuant is a quick ICP-MS technique used to determine the concentrations of all elements in the periodic system with the exception of H, N, O, F, inert gases and unstable (radio active) elements. The method uses correction factors for isotope abundancies, differences in ionisation and spectral interferences. The measuring range lies between 20 ng/l to 500 mg/l, depending on the element. The reproducibility is better than 10% RSD. The trueness is 70% to 200% of the expected value.
