US FDA: Analysis of Foods for As, Cd, Cr, Hg and Pb by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)
Current Method CFSAN/ORS/DBC/CHCB April 25, 2011
- This method is for the analysis of food for the following elements: arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead and mercury.
- The technique used for determining the above elements is Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). This instrument is to be operated in the helium collision cell mode to eliminate interference from isobaric polyatomic species via kinetic energy discrimination.
- The method assumes the use of one of the following Agilent ICP-MS instruments: 7500ce, 7500cx, 7700x.
