A new application note on the Analysis of Waste Water using a Prodigy High Dispersion ICP Spectrometer


Hudson, NH - April, 2005 – The analysis of drinking and wastewater (performed under U.S. EPA 600 Series of methods) states that any treatment facility that discharges to surface waters must use the appropriate method from this series. For facilities using Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) for compliance monitoring of metals, the required procedure is Method 200.7: The Determination of Metals and Trace Metals in Water and Wastes by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometry.

The types of samples that are analyzed under Method 200.7 represent routine analysis on a daily basis for a great number of laboratories. This method is respected as a standard operating protocol for ICP and is frequently considered the standard by which ICP instrumentation is measured both inside and outside the U.S.

The data presented in this application note demonstrates that the Prodigy High Dispersion ICP spectrometer from Teledyne Leeman Labs is an excellent tool for compliance monitoring for wastewater under U.S. EPA Method 200.7
