iCAP 6200 ICP spectrometer application note

Saturday, 14 November, 2009 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


Thermo Fisher Scientific has published an application note to illustrate the capabilities of its iCAP 6200 ICP spectrometer for the analysis of toxic trace elements in children’s toys.

The dual-view ICP instrument offers pre-optimised sample introduction settings and analysis-ready software method templates. The note, Analysis of migratory elements in toy samples using the Thermo Scientific iCAP 6200 ICP spectrometer, assesses the performance of the ICP for the routine analysis of toy samples for consumer safety verification. It is available for download in the literature library at www.thermo.com/icap.

The application note details the analysis of three samples extracted from a toy car and a baby rattle, each prepared in accordance with ASTM F963-08 and EN71 Part 3.

The study utilised the ICP’s integrated iTEVA software, which is supplied with pre-loaded method templates that enable protocol-compliant sample analysis in the environment, food safety, toy safety and WEEE/RoHS market sectors. These templates, combined with the instrument’s pre-optimised sample introduction system, enable simple, consistent operation and ensure ICP users can achieve good analytical performance with minimal method development requirements.

The capabilities of the iCAP 6200 ICP spectrometer are further examined in a webinar that is available via www.spectroscopynow.com/thermowebinars, and features examples from environmental and food/consumer safety applications.
