Analysis of Soil and Sludge by ICP-OES with Twin Interface Plasma Observation

Soil is a vital and generally non-renewable resource that governmental regulatory agencies protect aggressively in recognition of the potential for urban and industrial waste in soils to cross contaminate water sources and the human food chain.

This report describes the analysis of soil and sewage sludge using a next generation SPECTROBLUE TI. The instrument employs a twin interface option enabling accurate determination of alkali and earth alkali elements using the instrument’s radial mode and without the need for ionization buffering. Additionally trace element analysis is simultaneously demonstrated with high sensitivity using the axial mode. The report includes the line selection detection limits and studies on precision and accuracy of the analytical results.
