Meeting ISO standards
High-Purity Standards understands a comprehensive quality system is key to our customers’ confidence in the products that we manufacture. That’s why we developed our Total Quality System with the help and assessment of an independent agency to meet the requirements of three separate ISO standards: ISO 9001:2008, ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ISO Guide 34:2009.

Whatever your ICP-MS experience, you probably know that there are many textbooks compiled and edited by academics that approach ICP-MS from a purely theoretical and fundamental perspective, but there arenÕt any books that provide a practical perspective of the technique that are written specifically for the novice user. YouÕll be glad to know that the landscape is changing. With the publication of Practical Guide to ICP-MS: A Tutorial for Beginners, Third Edition, the user community has an new reference book that covers everything a beginner needs to know. Aimed specifically at analytical chemists who are not familiar with the technique and novice users who have just started using it, this updated, revised, and rewritten manuscript includes:
New to the third edition:
New chapter: Emerging ICP-MS Application Areas Ð covers the three most rapidly growing areas: analysis of flue gas desulfurization wastewaters, fully automated analysis of seawater samples using online chemistry procedures, and characterization of engineered nanoparticles
Discussion of all the new technology commercialized since the second edition.
An updated glossary of terms with more than 100 new entries
Examination of nonstandard sampling accessories, which are important for enhancing the practical capabilities of ICP-MS
Insight into additional applications in the environmental, clinical/biomedical, and food chemistry fields as well as new directives from the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) on determining impurities in pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements using Chapters 232, 233 and 2232
Description of the most important analytical factors for selecting an ICP-MS system, taking into consideration more recent application demands
Updated chapter on alternative sample introduction techniques, including all the new commercially-available systems
Revised chapter on comparing ICP-MS with other Atomic Spectroscopy techniques to reflect the most recent developments
Written by an insider with more than 20 years experience in product development, customer support, and technical marketing for an ICP-MS instrument vendor, the book highlights this powerful ultra trace-element technique as a practical solution to real-world problems. The in-depth presentation of analytical advantages and practical capabilities of the technique from someone who has been involved in all aspects of ICP-MS instrumental analysis, gives the author a unique insight into the technique and therefore makes the book an important part of any laboratory toolkit.
This reference describes the principles and application benefits of ICP-MS in a clear manner for laboratory managers, analytical chemists, and technicians who have limited knowledge of the technique. In addition, it offers much-needed guidance on how best to evaluate capabilities and compare with other trace element techniques when looking to purchase commercial ICP-MS instrumentation.
