Sawyer Environmental Chemistry Research Lab


Instruments - Analytical

Perkin-Elmer Model 3300XL Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer (ICP-AES)

Composed of:

  • Gemcone pneumatic nebulizer for use with high solute matrices
  • Ultrasonic nebulizer for use with aqueous matrices
  • Gilson 4-channel peristaltic pump
  • A/S 90 plus autosampler
  • WinLab32 instrument control and data management software

The advantage of ICP-AES analysis is its ability to do simultaneous multi-element analyses at low (ppb) concentrations for many elements.

Current Applications:
Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Beryllium, Bismuth, Boron, Cadmium, Calcium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Gold, Iron, Lead, Magnesium, Manganese, Nickel, Phosphorus, Potassium, Selenium, Silicon, Silver, Sodium, Strontium, Tin, Vanadium, Zinc

Additional Elements:
Carbon, Cerium, Cesium, Dysprosium, Erbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Gallium, Germanium, Hafnium, Holmium, Indium, Iridium, Lithium, Lanthanum, Lutetium, Mercury, Molybdenum, Neodymium, Niobium, Osmium, Palladium, Platinum, Praseodymium, Rhenium, Rhodium, Rubidium, Ruthenium, Samarium, Scandium, Sulfur, Tantalum, Tellurium, Terbium, Thallium, Thorium, Thulium, Titanium, Tungsten, Uranium, Ytterbium, Yttrium, Zirconium

Sample Matrices:

  • Water (drinking water, natural waters)
  • Soil/Sediment
  • Biological tissue
  • Agricultural products
  • Food products
