Application Note: Agilent 7900 ICP-MS Simplifies Drinking Water Analysis
12 August 2014

This application note describes the use of the Agilent 7900 ICP-MS to simplify drinking water analysis. The significantly improved sensitivity and lower background of the 7900 ICP-MS means that He mode can be applied to a wider range of elements including ppt level analytes such as Cd and Hg analysis. Additionally, the cell gas modes and instrument method settings used for drinking water analysis can also be applied to more complex environmental samples such as soils and sludges.
