Standard Practice for Describing and Specifying a Direct Current Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer
|Publication Date:||1 May 2008|
|ICS Code (Optical measuring instruments):||17.180.30|
This practice describes the components of a direct current plasma (DCP) atomic emission spectrometer. This practice does not attempt to specify component tolerances or performance criteria. This practice does, however, attempt to identify critical factors affecting bias, precision, and sensitivity. Before placing an order a prospective user should consult with the manufacturer to design a testing protocol for demonstrating that the instrument meets all anticipated needs.
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 hazards statements are give in Section 9.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
