Agilent Technologies extends boundaries of environmental metals analysis

5/20/2002 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced a system that extends the traditional analytical range for metals in environmental samples in a production laboratory, eliminating the need for other techniques such as graphite furnace atomic absorption and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). The Agilent 7500c inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS), with octopole reaction system (ORS) and optional integrated sample introduction system (ISIS), is simpler to operate and faster than traditional systems. It offers simultaneous and highly sensitive quantitation of elements at trace (ppb) or ultratrace (ppt) levels for highly toxic elements, while also accurately measuring common matrix elements, such as calcium or sodium, which are present at much higher concentrations.
