Speciation of Arsenic in Apple Juice by LC-ICP-MS on PlasmaQuant® MS Elite
26 March 2015
The different physico-chemical forms of most elements vary in terms of mobility, toxicity and bioavailability. Reporting only the total concentrations can often be misleading. Fruits can be highly polluted with arsenic today, due to the use of arsenic-based pesticides during the past century. This application note shows the sensitivity and detection capabilities of the PlasmaQuant MS Elite for arsenic speciation in apple juice.
