Samples are prepared by microwave closed vessel digestion with nitric acid. Solutions are infused into an ICP-MS instrument to perform identity and quantitation based on the linear response of the elements using calibration standards containing the elements with internal standards.
Information Required by Submitter:
Please supply estimates for solid matrices in ppb (ng/g)
This test will only measure the soluble portion of Aluminum present in your sample. If your sample contains both soluble and insoluble aluminum, please contact customer service at 1-800-245-5615 or specify the need for both soluble and insoluble Aluminum on your sample submission form.
