The analysis of elemental content is critical to ensuring the quality and safety of drinking water. Regulations such as Directive (EU) 2020/2184 and ISO 17294 provides guidelines for using ICP-MS for water analysis, aiming to protect human health from the adverse effects of its contamination.
ICP-MS technology is ideal for water analysis thanks to its multi-element detection capability combined with low detection limits and high-speed of analysis. However, plasma and matrix-based polyatomic interferences and doubly charged species need to be accounted for by applying mathematical corrections and/or collision/reaction mechanisms. The PerkinElmer NexION® ICP-MS with Universal Cell technology, which can be operated in both Collision and Reaction modes to tackle polyatomic interferences enables laboratories to meet and/or exceed the ISO and EU directives specifications.
