Model: Thermo ScientificTM iCAPTM 7600
(ICP-OES) Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) is an established and powerful technique for simultaneous analysis and quantification of trace elements in both liquid and solid samples. It is based on the core advanced technologies to solve the challenges of the most demanding laboratory applications. It is a type of emission spectroscopy that uses the inductively coupled plasma to produce excited atoms and ions that emit electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths characteristic of a particular element. During analysis the intensity of the light emitted at specific wavelengths is measures and used to determine the concentration of the element(s) of interest. The thermal excitation sources can populate a large number of different energy levels for several different elements at the same time where all of the excited atoms and ions can then emit their characteristic radiation at the same time. This results in the flexibility to choose from several different emissions concurrently and allows detection of multiple elements simultaneously.

ICP can be used in the quantitative analysis in the following areas such as Physical sciences and Nano-composites, environmental pollution control studies, Forensics, Industrials metals, natural materials such as rocks, minerals, soil, sediment, air, water, plant and animal tissue; pure and applied geochemistry, mineralogy, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry, chemical ecology, environmental sciences and food industry, medical sciences etc The analysis of elements not readily identified by AAS such as Boron, Phosphorus, Titanium, and Zirconium etc can be done with ICP.
