Application Note: The Determination of Toxic, Trace, and Essential Elements in Food Matrices using THGA Coupled with Longitudinal Zeeman Background Correction
12 October 2011

This application note analyzes five different NIST® Standard Reference Material (SRM) food samples, which represent a typical cross-section of food types for human consumption. It demonstrates the ability of the PinAAcle 900T spectrometer to quantitate in the low-ppb range, thereby reducing the need for an ICP-MS to successfully measure this suite of elements in foods. The PinAAcle 900Z (Longitudinal Zeeman Furnace only) spectrometer can also be used for this application.
