instruments must be operated by trained laboratory personnel.
At the time of this work, the commercial laboratory used to analyse our soil samples was using ICP-AES
in preference to colourimetry to analyse soils for Colwell P.
In this study we provide detail analysis of major minerals and nutrient in several herbal extracts using ICP-AES
The method was tested by analysing selected samples by the ICP-AES
Key words: carbon analysis, ICP-AES
, ICP-MS, inhalation toxicology, neutron activation analysis, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence.
Bulk analysis using ICP-AES
was performed by Dale Counce at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), and by Carol Nabelek at the University of Missouri.
The present ICP-AES
method was used to determine the blood boron concentration during and after infusion of BPA-F in 12 patients (6 women and 6 men; 44-67 years) who received BNCT treatment for glioblastoma multiforme.
analyses agree closely with the XRF values.
The analytical techniques used were NIOSH method 7300 and 7082 with ICP-AES
(inductively couple plasma).
The elements detected by ICP-AES
in this work with the characteristic wavelengths chosen for each element viz.
and ICP-MS are modern analytical methods that have been more commonly used in pharmaceutical research and development applications rather than quality testing in manufacturing.
