Abstract: Standard reference materials, e.g., human serum, tomato leaves, pine needles and hair, were analyzed with use of a VG PlasmaQuad ICP-MS instrument operated with recommended parameters (cf. Hutton and Eaton, J. Anal. Atomic Spectrom., 1987, 2, 595). The results (tabulated) show the method to be accurate; detection limits are typically at the pg mL-1 level. Use of the instrument in the rapid multi-element semi-quantitative screening mode as well as in the conventionally calibrated mode is described. A rapid data-acquisition system (Transcan) is available that permits elementary screening even for transient signals, e.g., from flow injection sample introduction.
