Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) News
An international research team has used laser ablation ICP-MS to retrace the lifetime journey of an Arctic woolly mammoth, which covered enough of the Alaska landscape during its 28 years to almost circle the Earth twice.
A new concept, based on ICP-MS, for rapidly analysing for the presence of a virus from colds to coronaviruses has been proposed.
Debris from depleted uranium munitions used in the Gulf War has long been blamed for contributing to the illness of hundreds of thousands of veterans, but new research using ICP-MS proves it is not the cause.
There has been no “universal” straightforward technique that provides a full characterisation of microplastics. A new ICP-MS method looks like providing a solution.
Ten times more sensitive than current techniques, the size exclusion chromatography-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry technique allows, from a blood serum sample, the simultaneous detection of different biomarkers related to cancer.
Photonis USA has announced that it has reached an agreement with MasCom Technologies GmbH of Bremen, Germany, to stock and resell a wide selection of discrete dynode electron multipliers designed for use in inductively coupled mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) instruments. The agreement adds to Photonis’ extensive line of electron multiplier products.
Unique “graffiti” on the walls of a cave in central China describes the effects drought had on the local population over the past 500 years. Stable isotope and elemental analysis of stalactites have been able to confirm the climate variations.
