E4L - Lithium Metaborate/Tetraborate Fusion - ICP-OES and ICP-MS

A combination of lithium metaborate/tetraborate fusion ICP-OES and trace element ICP-MS.

 

Fused sample is diluted and analyzed by Perkin Elmer Sciex ELAN 6000, 6100 or 9000 ICP-MS. Three blanks and five controls (three before sample group and two after) are analyzed per group of samples. Duplicates are fused and analyzed every 15 samples. Instrument is recalibrated every 40 samples.
