Analytical techniques in the sciences


What began as an optical emission spectroscopic technique for analyzing trace elements has expanded into a source for both atomic emission spectroscopy and mass spectrometry capable of detecting elements at sub-ppb level with good accuracy and precision, explains Dean (applied sciences, Northumbria U.-Newcastle). He discusses practical aspects of using it, including preparing standards for instrument calibration, identifying and selecting appropriate sample preparation techniques for solid and aqueous samples, the methods for introducing the sample into the spectroscope, choosing between atomic emission spectroscopy or mass spectrometry, and effective record keeping in the laboratory.
