Analysis of Environmental Samples Following the CLP ILM 05.3 Protocol by ICP-OES with Axial Plasma Observation

To monitor pollution and protect the environment, the US EPA has been given the authority to develop standardized analytical methods for the measurement of pollutants in environmental samples.

The contract laboratory program CLP ILM 05.3, (Multi-Media, Multi-Concentration, Inorganic Analytical Service for Superfund) includes analytical methods for Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), Cold Vapor AN APPLICATION REPORT FROM SPECTRO ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTS ICP-77, Rev. 1 Atomic Absorption (CVAA), and colorimetric techniques, in order to provide data for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in support of the investigation and cleanup activities under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) [1], [2], [3].The methods cover 23 analyte metals, mercury and cyanide and are suitable for water, soil, sediment and aqueous samples.
