Determination of Mineral and Trace Elemental Contents in Drinking Water by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry


User Benefits

・A sensitive and reliable method to determine elemental contents in drinking water, using ICPMS-2030 with collision cell technology. ・Content levels of regulated analytes far below the maximum contaminant levels, defined by the US EPA (2018) regulations, could be achieved.


In this application work, trace metal and mineral contents in drinking water samples were simultaneously determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The analysis results of water samples from different common sources were compared against the US EPA regulations. The elemental concentrations were either well below the regulation limits or not detected. The ICP-MS method developed applying helium collision cell technology was verified and it provides a fast, sensitive, and reliable method for water quality and water safety evaluation.
