Manitoba Chemical Analysis Laboratory

ICP elemental analysis

Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emmision Spectrometer (ICP-OES)

MCAL is a chemical analysis facility offering a wide range of instrumental methods for the analysis of biological, environmental and industrial samples.

The laboratory has an ICP-OES instrument that can anlalyse over 70 elements from the periodic table.  The instrument can analyse a multiple of elements at one run.  Their is an autosampler that provides the instrument with a new sample every 3 to 5 min. making it possible to analyse many samples at a reasonable cost.

Iron and calcium content of water can be determined.  The macro and trace mineral analysis of feed can be verified.  Phosphate content of soils or environmental samples can be determined.
