ICP-OES stands for ‘Inductively Coupled Optical Emission Spectrometer’. Colloquially, we often call it simply ICP and ‘Ossi’. ICP-OES has first-class analysis capacity: dozens of elements can be measured for during a single run (in less than a minute) at a wider concentration range. iCAP PRO ICP-OES allow for accurate measurements at a high resolution and low detection limits with high-performance optics. The user-friendly software allows for full automation of measurements and reports. The unique CID (=Charge Injection Device) semiconductor detector ensures reliable measurements even in complex matrixes. The method development work done by Hosmed’s chemists has helped dozens of laboratories to use new systems and/or technologies. Our services ensure quick adoption and continuous support. Hosmed’s skilled staff and large spare part warehouse ensure fast and efficient repairs and routine maintenance.
ICP-OES is the technique of choice for many applications that require analysing a sample for its elemental content. Here are some examples:
- Environmental samples (soil and water)
- Process solutions in the chemical industry
- Oils, greases and biofuels
