Recent applications of laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) for biological sample analysis: a follow-up review
Information provided by laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) in the analysis of biological tissues is expanding.
Plasma source mass spectrometry for radioactive waste characterisation in support of nuclear decommissioning: a review
The efficient characterization of nuclear waste materials represents a significant challenge during nuclear site decommissioning, with a range of radionuclides requiring measurement in varied and often complex sample matrices. ICP-MS is increasingly a practicable alternative to radiometric methods for medium to long-lived radionuclides.
Improvements in the direct analysis of advanced materials using ICP-based measurement techniques
The analysis of advanced materials using ICP-based solid sampling approaches offers many advantages and possibilities. Recent developments are discussed in this review..
Sample pre-treatment techniques for use with ICP-MS hyphenated techniques for elemental speciation in biological samples
This review will focus specifically on the state of the art of novel sample pretreatment methods which have been combined with ICP-MS based hyphenated techniques for elemental speciation in biological samples.
High precision osmium stable isotope measurements by double spike MC-ICP-MS and N-TIMS
We present a method for precise determination of stable osmium isotope compositions by MC-ICP-MS and N-TIMS using a double spike.
Characterization of a new ICP-TOFMS instrument with continuous and discrete introduction of solutions
In this work, we evaluate the capabilities of a new commercially available inductively coupled plasma time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ICP-TOFMS) instrument, the icpTOF, for analysis of liquid samples with continuous and discrete sample-introduction systems.
Rapid high-resolution U–Pb LA-Q-ICPMS age mapping of zircon
206Pb–238U LA-ICPMS image map of a complex, polyphase zircon produced using 7 micron rasters.
Impact of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy data normalization on multivariate classification accuracy
Normalization of data is significant and should be chosen according to the sample matrix under investigation.
Investigation of the oxidative transformation of roxarsone by electrochemistry coupled to hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry
The oxidative transformation of the animal feed additive roxarsone was investigated using electrochemistry (EC) coupled to hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) and mass spectrometry.
Analysis of whole blood by ICP-MS equipped with a high temperature total sample consumption system
In this work, the performance of a high temperature torch Integrated Sample Introduction System (hTISIS) using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for the multi-element analysis of whole blood is evaluated.
