Short Lived Elements

Trace element analysis packages are highly sensitive to the matrix. The detection limits provided are approximations only and can be higher or lower by an order of magnitude. An initial analysis should be done to assess the applicability of these techniques for your sample matrix.

Element Detection Limits (ppm)
Aluminum (Al) 1
Bromine (Br) 5
Calcium (Ca) 100
Chlorine (Cl) 20
Copper (Cu) 2
Dysprosium (Dy) 0.1
Europium (Eu) 0.5
Gallium (Ga) 1
Indium (In) 0.01
Iodine (I) 1
Magnesium (Mg) 100
Manganese (Mn) 1
Potassium (K) 50
Sodium (Na) 5
Strontium (Sr) 5
Titanium (Ti) 5
Vanadium (V) 0.2
