Teach Me in 10 – An Introduction to ICP-MS With Abe Gutierrez and Ed McCurdy

Video   Oct 15, 2020


In this installment of Teach Me in 10, we're joined by Abe Gutierrez and Ed McCurdy, who provide an eloquent introduction to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, or ICP-MS.

ICP-MS is an analytical technique that can measure most of the elements listed in the period table quickly and at trace levels. In addition, ICP-MS can also measure almost any sample type, including most solids and some gases. As such, it is a technique that is adopted by scientists from a wide variety of different research fields. Abe and Ed have been working with ICP-MS for approximately 30 years. In this Teach Me in 10, they break down the ICP-MS instrumentation so that you can easily understand it.
