Application Note: The Determination of Major and Trace Elements in Milk using ICP-Q-MS
7 June 2016

Read this application note to learn how ICP-Q-MS can be used to determine the amount of analytes in milk and milk products. Total elemental determinations, including iodine, were performed using the Thermo Scientific™ iCAP Q™ ICP-Q-MS in a single operation mode. A Thermo Scientific ICS-5000 was coupled to the iCAP Q for subsequent speciation determinations. Speciation analysis showed iodide was present as the major iodine species in all samples and two unknown species were observed in cows milk.
