The Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) analysis method uses a high-frequency inductively coupled plasma as ionization source and a Mass Spectrometer as mass/charge filter device. It is ideal for the elemental analysis of sample solutions, in particular where the lowest detection limits are demanded. Due to the increase in the number of analyzed samples, analyzed elements and detection limits in recent years, the ICP Mass Spectrometer has become highly regarded for its speed, accuracy and performance.

The ICP-MS is widely used for analysis of drinking water and enables a large field of applications for elemental analysis. Besides environmental testing laboratories (water, soils), the ICPMS-2030 is used in the food industry, in clinical laboratories and in the pharmaceutical sector to fulfill the latest requirements of USP232/233 and the ICH-Q3D guideline for elemental impurities.

Shimadzu’s Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer ICPMS-2030 supports an extensive range of analysis from trace levels to high concentrations. The optimized internal structure including the newly-developed collision cell enables analysis at sub-ppt level sensitivity by minimized spectral interference and improved transmission efficiency of atomic ions, so that precise quantitation results in elemental impurity analysis become more reliable.

With its newly developed collision cell and optimized internal structure, the ICPMS-2030 provides superior sensitivity. At the same time, thanks to the adoption of its proprietary mini-torch unit and provision of an Eco mode, the quantity of argon gas needed for analyses has been greatly reduced to the industry’s lowest levels. As a result, low running costs are assured. The Development Assistant function of the software automatically sets the optimal analysis conditions for quantitative analysis. Then, after measurements are complete, the Diagnosis Assistant function automatically checks the validity of the necessary data. While reducing the burden on the user, the efficiency of analyses is enhanced and the reliability of the data can be increased. It complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
