Application Note

Rapid Water Analysis Following U.S. EPA 200.7 Using the Avio 560 Max ICP-OES

With the growth of industry, pollution and wastes continue to be produced in greater and greater quantities, resulting in an increasing number of samples which need to be analyzed for trace elements in accordance with U.S. EPA Method 200.7.

In an effort to meet this increased demand, the Avio® 560 Max fully simultaneous ICP-OES incorporates a built-in High Throughput System (HTS) for rapid sample-to-sample times. The HTS is a valve-and-loop system which minimizes the time required for the sample to reach the nebulizer and washout time after analysis by using a vacuum to both rapidly fill and wash the sample loop. This work demonstrates the ability of the Avio 560 Max ICP-OES to perform rapid analysis – 60 seconds sample to sample – of wastewater in accordance with U.S. EPA Method 200.7.

Advantages of PerkinElmer's PlasmaShear Technology for ICP-OES

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.

Avio Max Series ICP-OES Solid-State RF Generator for Flat Plate Plasma

PerkinElmer's Avio® Max series ICP-OES spectrometers feature a free-running solid-state RF generator for Flat Plate plasma, a proprietary technology which generates a transversely symmetrical plasma, replacing previous helical-coil induction. This approach produces a flat-bottom shaped plasma which prevents sample and vapors from escaping around the outside. With Flat Plate technology, the same robust, matrix-tolerant plasma is generated and maintained with approximately half the argon consumption of helical load-coil systems. Maintenance-free, this innovative approach to RF generation minimizes operating costs without compromising performance.

Flat Plate Plasma Technology on the Avio Max Series ICP-OES

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® Max 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.

HP-ICP-OES: Using the Avio 550/560 Max to Achieve the Highest Possible Precisions

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. For these applications, a simple way of achieving high precision measurements is through high precision ICP-OES (HP-ICP-OES), an invaluable tool only available on the Avio® 550/560 Max systems.

Multicomponent Spectral Fitting on the Avio Max Series ICP-OES

Baseline and interfering element correction (IEC) are used with ICP optical emission spectrometry to correct analytical signals for contributions from the plasma, the matrix or elements other than the analyte. If the contributions from these components are not corrected accurately, the analytical result will be erroneous. Yet both correction techniques rely on interpolated or extrapolated correction factors. Although the two techniques can improve performance with some types of samples, they are not universally applicable.

For greater accuracy, using a full segment of the spectrum around the analyte wavelength is preferred to using just one or two points. To address this, PerkinElmer developed Multicomponent Spectral Fitting (MSF), a standard feature on the Avio® Max series ICP-OES instruments. MSF can significantly improve your analytical results – detection limits, accuracy, and precision.
