Mass spectrometers and ICP/MS instruments provide trace level analysis of a wide range of metals and components. The limitation of these techniques arrives when analysing oxidation states of metals or compounds.
The addition of ion chromatography as a separation technique prior to injection into an MS or ICP/MS allows the quantification and qualification of metal species, such as chromium, arsenic and mercury at very low detection limits.
