Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy FacilityBerkeley RIC
The College of Natural Resources' Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Spectroscopy Facility has a Perkin Elmer 5300 DV optical emission ICP with auto sampler. The ICP can measure up to at least 21 different elements simultaneously. Users should estimate between 6 and 12 samples per hour plus a half hour warm up of the instrument. Applications include plant elemental analysis, soil extracts, silicon chip analysis, nanoparticles, rock fusions to name just a few.
