ICP Analysis

Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry better known as ICP. The principal of Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry is one of energizing elements in the presence of a high temperature plasma. Particles of light (photons) are emitted by each element present at specific wavelengths. The instrument separates and measures the quantity of photons emitted for the selected elements and calculates the resulting concentrations. ICP Spectrometry is reknown for the ability to determine accurately a wide array of elements in a full scale of concentrations ranging from trace amounts in parts per million (ppm) to high percentages.

Profiners utilizes two ICP machines in its daily laboratory testing. Our ICP capabilities allow our customers to target elements of interest in a wide variety of sample compositions. Depending on this compositional makeup, we customize an analytical method to maximize the ICP's accuracy. Our lab would welcome your inquiries concerning your specific elemental testing requirements. Profiners will provide you with a cost effective means to address your analytical needs.

Profiners employs this latest technology to produce accurate results in a timely fashion. The following are examples of ICP testing we provide:

  • Certification of purity for fine gold, silver, palladium and platinum
  • Precious metal analysis of metallics and fines
  • Lead and cadmium testing of costume jewelry, as well as, elemental analysis of plating solutions
  • Trace analysis of karat gold, sterling silver, platinum and palladium alloys, as well as, for alloy additives such as, Rhenium, Silicon, Phosphorous, Boron, Iridium, Gallium and Indium
  • Alloy testing for minor elements that include: Copper, Nickel, Tin and Zinc

For as many elements as there are, there are just as many scenarios for testing requirements that are too numerous to list below. Please call us to discuss your special testing requirements for ICP analysis.
