Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES)


The Perkin-Elmer Optima 3000DV.

Perkin-Elmer Optima 3000DV and 4300DV Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometers

  • Analysis of solutions or dissolved solids
  • Detection limits in the parts per billion range in solution for many elements
  • Echelle spectrometer with two segmented charge coupled device array detectors for simultaneous detection of more than 200 spectra including more than 350 analytical emission lines
  • Determine up to 70 elements in two minutes per sample
  • Measure minor, trace and ultratrace concentrations without dilution or preconcentration because of wide linear dynamic range
  • Axial or radial viewing of ICP emission provides lowest detection limits or maximum accuracy

The Optima 3000DV and 4300DV instruments were donated to The Ohio State University by Perkin- Elmer Corporation for research in the Laboratory for Plasma Spectrochemistry.
