Instrument/Facility Name: Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry
Make                                   : Agilent
Model                                  : 5100
Specification   :

Click to ViewThe sample preparation and analysis is done as per method of Jannathulla et al., 2017.For acid digestion method, it takes 2-3 days and 2 days for analysis in ICP-OES.After analysis the result is stored in the Agilent ICP-OES instrument software (5.2)

  Working Principles
Click to ViewInductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry is a powerful tool for the analysis of trace elements and metals in variety of samples. With this technique, liquid samples are injected into a radio frequency (RF)-induced argon plasma of 10000 K using a nebulizer. Due to collision between the argon atom and the electrons, desolvation, atomization and ionizations of the sample takes place in the torch. Due to the thermic energy taken up by the electrons, they reach a higher excited state. When the electrons drop back to ground level energy is liberated as light (photons). Each element has its own characteristic emission spectrum. .

  User Instructions
Analysis of trace elements and metals in feed ingredients, feeds, fish samples, soil and water etc.,If materials are given in raw then about 50 g of sample is required and in case of dried or grinded sample the sample amount required is about 5 g. The sample is prepared through microwave digestion. For analysis of liquid water sample the required amount is 100 ml each. Method blanks should always be included in submitted sample set. Submitted sample should be less than 0.1% total dissolved solids (TDS) must be filtered (through a 0.45μ filter paper) and free of particulates.
