Quantitative Elemental Detection at ppb- to ppm-levels
The accurate measurement of metallic contaminants in environmental soil/sludge matrices requires the quantitation of a wide array of elements at varying concentrations. Regulatory concern about the potential toxicity from exposure to these elements – derived from application of biosolids for agricultural purposes, emissions from industrial activity and other sources - drives detection elemental analysis at ppb to ppm level concentrations. Successful quantitation of contamination requires detection in complex sample extracts. Running on air, Agilent’s solution for MP-AES – Agilent 4200 MP-AES - provides analysts with a powerful, fast and cost effective tool that facilitates quantitative analysis of metals in soil.
