ICP-MS in Food Testing

Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) in Food Testing

Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) allows the analysis of a variety of food samples accurately for elements present at both trace and nutritional levels during the same analysis. PerkinElmer has been at the forefront of ICP-MS technology – from the very first commercial ICP-MS back in 1983 to the first instrument bringing together the detection limits of a true reaction cell and the simplicity of a collision cell in 2010, and most recently, the industry’s first four-quadrupole system – nearly four decades of patents, innovations, and accolades.

NexION 5000 Multi-Quadrupole ICP Mass Spectrometer

  • Multi-quadrupole ICP-MS system – the first in its category to boast four quads – innovatively designed to meet and exceed the most demanding trace-elemental testing requirements;
  • Exceptionally low background equivalent concentrations (<1 ppt, even in hot plasma) and outstanding detection limits, key to ensuring accurate and repeatable results;
  • Superior interference removal, outstanding background equivalent concentrations (BECs), phenomenal stability, and unmatched matrix tolerance.
