Gold (Au) is one of the most precious and useful metals, due to a unique combination of characteristics: resistance to tarnish/corrosion, ability to conduct electricity, and ability to be easily formed into a variety of shapes. And because of this versatility, gold is widely used in jewelry, artwork, currency, electronics, medicine/dentistry, aerospace, and ornamental decorations.
The price of Au is highly dependent on the impurity levels present within – not all uses require the same purities. Towards this end, ASTM has developed specifications for various purities of refined gold in method B562-95: Standard Specification for Refined Gold.
This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer’s Avio® 500 ICP-OES to measure impurities in gold at the levels defined in ASTM Method B562-95, and detection limits of 1-2 orders of magnitude lower than the specification limits suggest its ability to measure even lower impurity levels.
The London Metal Exchange (LME) issues specifications for a variety of purities for different metals. This work focuses on the analysis of contaminants in nickel with PerkinElmer’s Avio® 500 ICP Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES), using “Special Contract Rules for Primary Nickel” as a guideline for the analytes and required concentrations.
Globally, heavy machinery is used in construction, mining, and a variety of other areas. As the scale of the operations increase, the size, complexity, and cost of the equipment also increase, meaning that breakdowns can be costly, both in equipment repair and lost revenue. As a result, preventive maintenance is paramount. Lubricants are among the key fluids that can be tested, especially the oil used in engines. By monitoring the elemental concentration of the oil or other lubricants (hydraulics, transmission, gear), the status of that compartment can be determined.
This work focuses on the analysis of wastewaters following the guidelines provided in U.S. EPA Method 200.7. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed Method 200.7 for the determination of metals and trace elements in waters and wastes by ICP-OES, with the current version being Revision 4.4.1 While the scope of this method allows it to be applied to a variety of sample types, a common application is wastewater analysis.
With the growing importance of domesticated animals as both a food source (i.e. livestock) as well as pets and service animals, their health is important. Therefore, it is imperative to monitor the nutrient content in animal feed. Nutrients exist in a variety of forms, including biological, organics, minerals, metals, and vitamins, which must be accurately measured to ensure that the feed meets the nutritional needs of the animals. Due to the importance of the analysis, a variety of standardized methods have been developed to ensure accurate nutrient analysis.
Most mineral and metallic nutrients are present at high concentrations and can be measured with atomic absorption (AA), inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), or ICP mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). ICP-OES is perhaps the preferred instrument for performing these analyses as it strikes the best balance between simplicity, ruggedness, matrix tolerance, accuracy, sample throughput, and cost.
This work discusses the analysis of animal feed by ICP-OES following EN 15621 guidelines, demonstrating the advantages of PerkinElmer’s Avio 500 ICP-OES for this application.
Ethanol is an important blending component in fuels commonly used in gasoline/petrol. Because of its wide use, it is important to monitor the concentrations of impurities in the ethanol which can negatively impact the performance of the resulting fuel. As a result, standards have been created for the phosphorus (P), sulfur (S), and copper (Cu) content in fuel.
Ethanol analysis by ICP-OES can be challenging both due to volatility and high carbon content. However, with the right choice of sample introduction components and a robust plasma, ethanol can be measured with ease. This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer’s Avio 500 ICP-OES to measure phosphorus, sulfur, copper, and iron in ethanol, leveraging the capabilities of Multicomponent Spectral Fitting (MSF) to eliminate the effect of interferences.
Battery usage is growing rapidly as new uses are found, leading to the development of new battery types, technologies, and materials. Some commonly-used elements in different types of batteries include lithium, manganese, nickel, phosphorus, and zinc, among others. The percentage of these components can range from single digit up to 30%, depending on the battery.
An important factor in obtaining optimum performance is accurately knowing the ratios of the major components, since deviations can negatively affect battery performance, as can the presence of impurities. Therefore, the major components must be measured both with high accuracy and precision, while, at the same time, measuring impurity levels.
ICP-OES is the ideal analytical technique to meet these needs – it has a high tolerance to matrices, yet is capable of high precision and can accurately measure impurities down to the µg/L level. This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer's Avio® 500 ICP-OES to achieve RSDs < 0.1% for matrix elements in simulated battery materials, the result of the instrument's ability to perform true simultaneous measurements.

The London Metal Exchange issues specifications for a number of different metals in several grades. This work focuses on the analysis of lead of different purities with PerkinElmer’s Avio® 500 ICP Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES), using “Special Contract Rules for Standard Lead1” as a guideline for the analytes and concentrations.
The analysis of geological materials poses a challenge due to their matrix composition and the sample preparation process required to convert the samples into solution. A commonly used sample preparation technique for geological samples is lithium fusion, which involves mixing the sample with excess lithium borate and heating until the lithium borate melts and dissolves the sample to form a homogenous mass. The resulting solid is dissolved in acid for analysis.
Fusion samples are some of the most punishing samples for an ICP-OES sample introduction system, as they contain high concentrations of Group I elements (such as lithium, sodium, and potassium), which can result in deposits on the nebulizer and injector, resulting in signal drift. In addition, the high concentrations of Group I elements may cause rapid devitrification of the quartz torch, so obtaining accurate results with good precision over longer time intervals is challenging. However, with the proper choice of sample introduction components, these challenges can be overcome.
This work describes the analysis of fusion samples leveraging the PerkinElmer Avio® 500 ICP-OES, with a focus on long-term stability.
The analysis of trace metals in metallurgical matrices also presents a challenge for ICP-OES: spectral interferences. Many elements have a large number of emission lines (i.e. approximately 20,000 for iron), which increases the potential for spectral interferences. This effect is compounded in metallurgical samples, where the matrix element(s) are present at high levels due to the minimal dilutions used.

PerkinElmer continues its tradition of excellence and leadership in ICP technology with our fourth-generation, free-running solid-state RF generator on the Avio® ICP-OES with maintenance-free Flat Plate™ plasma technology, using approximately half the argon of traditional helical coil systems.
When performing measurements with ICP-OES, precisions (i.e. relative standard deviations, RSDs) of 1-2% are typical. However, applications exist where greater precision is required, such as in the analysis of precious metals, major components in battery materials, and verification of the matrix composition of samples. A simple way of achieving high precision measurements is through a technique called Continuous Real-Time Simultaneous Internal Standardization (CRTSIS) only available on a truly simultaneous ICP-OES, such as PerkinElmer’s Avio® 500.
Download this technical note to fully understand the true capabilities of the Avio 500’s CRTSIS for your high-precision applications.
A robust and stable plasma is essential when performing analytical analyses by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). The plasma is traditionally generated by passing argon through a series of concentric quartz tubes (the ICP torch) within a helical, radio frequency (RF) induction coil. Once established, this highly-ionized argon plasma canreach temperatures as high as 10,000 K, allowing for complete atomization of the compounds within a sample and minimizing the potential for chemical interferences.
PerkinElmer's patented Flat Plate™ plasma technology for the Avio® series ICP-OES provides several advantages over traditional helical coil systems - while capable of accommodating the same sample introduction systems and achieving comparable analytical precision, Flat Plate technology achieves greater plasma robustness and stability because of its unique design, leading to less sample loss, greater analytical signal, lower argon consumption, and less maintenance.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of face masks by the general public has become a critical personal protective measure to minimize person-to-person transmission. While health care workers use medical or surgical masks, the general population uses non-medical, otherwise known as hygienic, face masks to greatly reduce the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 by capturing droplets and aerosols from those infected with the virus.
In response to the increased demand for both the number and variety of non-medical face masks, many companies are now producing them to meet the public’s need, and with this great variety, the quality and the safety of the face masks must be assessed. This work describes the considerations surrounding metal analysis in hygienic face masks used to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
