Standard Practice for Describing and Specifying Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometers
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
|ICS Code (Optical measuring instruments):||17.180.30|
This practice describes the components of an inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICPAES) that are basic to its operation and to the quality of its performance. This practice identifies critical factors affecting accuracy, precision, and sensitivity. It is not the intent of this practice to specify component tolerances or performance criteria, since these are unique for each instrument. A prospective user should consult with the manufacturer before placing an order, to design a testing protocol that demonstrates the instrument meets all anticipated needs.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific safety hazard statements are given in Section 13.
