ActLabs ICP-MS 59 elements (part of the Ultratrace 2 aqua regia package)



Activation Laboratories ICP-MS 59 elements (part of the Ultratrace 2 aqua regia package).  The samples were also analysed by ICP-ES as part of the package, which extends the dynamic range for several elements.

General Methodology:

Actlabs Ultratrace 2

A 0.5 g sample is digested in aqua regia at 90°C in a microprocessor controlled digestion block for 2 hours.  The solution is diluted and analyzed by ICP/MS using a Perkin Elmer SCIEX ELAN 6000, 6100 or 9000 ICP/MS.  One blank is run for every 68 samples.  An in-house control is run every 33 samples.  Digested standards are run every 68 samples.  After every 15 samples, a digestion duplicate is analyzed.  Instrument is recalibrated every 68 samples.

Certain elements (Ti, P and S) are analyzed by ICP/OES using a Varian 735 ES.  This extends the dynamic range for a number of elements as well.  International certified reference materials USGS GXR-1, GXR-2, GXR-4 and GXR-6 are analyzed at the beginning and end of each batch of samples.  Internal control standards are analyzed every 10 samples and a duplicate is run for every 10 samples.  This digestion is not total and will not dissolve silicates some oxides and resistate minerals (e.g., zircon, monazite, sphene, etc.).
