Perkin-Elmer Optima 5300 DV Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer


ICP-OES is used for multi-element analysis (~ mid-ppb to ppm range) in water, sediment, soil and other environmental/biological samples.

  • Equipped with concentric nebulizer and cyclonic spray chamber for use with aqueous matrices.
  • Lower detection limits in mid-ppb range with wide elemental capabilities from lithium to bismuth
  • Gilson 4-channel peristaltic pump.
  • AS 90 plus Autosampler.
  • WinLab32 instrument control and data management software.
  • The advantage of ICP-OES is its ability to measure,simultaneously, multiple elements in a single sample at ppb level concentrations.

Common Applications:

Ag, Ba, Ca, Cr, Co, Cu, Pb, Mn, Ni, As, Se, Sr, V, Zn, etc.

Potential Capabilities:

Many other trace elements.

Sample Types:

Water, soil, food products, biological materials, etc.
