A form of mass spectrometry known as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry ionises the sample using an inductively coupled plasma. The material is atomized, and atomic and tiny polyatomic ions are produced, which are later identified. It is renowned for its capacity to identify a number of non-metals as well as metals in liquid samples at incredibly low concentrations.
It is a flexible instrument for isotopic labelling since it can detect many isotopes of the same element. In comparison to atomic absorption spectroscopy, ICP-MS is faster, more accurate, and more sensitive.
ICP-MS introduces numerous interfering species, including argon from the plasma, air component gases that leak through the cone orifices, contamination from glassware, and contamination from the cones, in contrast to other types of mass spectrometry, such as thermal ionisation mass spectrometry and glow discharge mass spectrometry.
A plasma that has been inductively heated by an electromagnetic coil and is sufficiently dense with ions and electrons to make the gas electrically conductive is known as an inductively coupled plasma. A plasma can be created by ionising a gas just 1% of it; this is enough to give the gas plasma-like properties.
Every positive charge on an ion in the plasmas employed in spectrochemical analysis is counterbalanced by a free electron, rendering them effectively electrically neutral. There are almost equal amounts of ions and electrons in each unit volume of these plasmas because the positive ions are almost all singly charged and there aren’t many negative ions.
The Global Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
