The recently developed technology of triple-quadrupole inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) offers a unique solution for the removal of spectral interferences in ICP-MS.

This article describes the use of an in-line, autodilution, and autocalibration sample delivery system coupled to an inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry system to analyze a group of over-the-counter pharmaceutical products.

Single-reaction-chamber (SRC) microwave digestion was used for the digestion of pharmaceutical samples before inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) analysis according to draft USP chapters <232> and <233>.

This article discusses how coupling an inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer with an efficient ultrasonic nebulizer improves trace element detection in a 7.5% (v/v) high-purity sulfuric acid matrix.
