ICP-OES is a rugged, robust technique capable of analyzing complex matrices containing percent levels of dissolved solids without the need for dilution. Nevertheless, to ensure accurate, robust analyses several challenges must be overcome. Two important obstacles are self-absorption by the plasma and dealing with the dissolved solids which are not vaporized in the plasma. PerkinElmer’s proprietary PlasmaShear™ technology is a fully integrated and automated interference-removal system that delivers problem-free axial analysis while protecting the optics from corrosion and deposition.
