Application Note: Brine Analysis with the ULTIMA 2 ICP-AES
21 May 2013

Analysis of trace elements is a major issue for the use of brines in the food industry to ensure that no heavy metals are present and for the chemical production to avoid any contamination in production of chemicals that may result in lethal consequences. This application note describes the elemental analysis of brines using the ULTIMA 2 ICP-AES. The ULTIMA 2 is ideal for brine analysis as it does not require dilution of the samples and it allows the analysis of many elements with low detection limits.
