Description: The ThermoFisher ICAP 7400 ICP-OES is the backbone of all chemical analyses performed in the LIME laboratory. The ICP-OES is used to analyze elemental sample composition for a wide range of sample types. This instrument has high throughput and a robust sample introduction system, and a wide range of concentrations. It is the preferred technique for refractory elements such as Ti, Mo, W, and Zr. Elements routinely analyzed using the ICP-OES include aluminum, antimony, barium, boron, cadmium. calcium, cerium, copper, iron, lithium, magnesium, manganese, nickel, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, sodium, tin, titanium, terbium, and zirconium. The laboratory has the capability to perform analysis for the following elements, which are requested less frequently: arsenic, bismuth, chromium, cobalt, gadolinium, gold, lanthanum, molybdenum, and silver.
