Trace and ultra-trace analyses of elemental constituents and contaminants in environmental and industrial samples led to the demand for sensitive multi-element techniques such as ICP-OES and ICP-MS. Innovations in instrumentation enhanced robustness, performance, and productivity. However, achieving accurate results remains a challenge, especially for complex samples containing suspended and dissolved solids, organic compounds, salts, etc. Systematic errors during preparations, physical interferences from matrix components, and spectral interferences contribute to the challenges. 

In this presentation, recommended best practices for the elemental analysis workflow from sample preparation to analysis will be discussed.  Learn how streamlining processes within the workflow save time, resources, and help to achieve accurate results and quality data.
