Recent Advances and Trends in Inductively Coupled Plasma–Mass Spectrometry and Applications

There have been exciting recent advances in ICP-MS instrumentation, such as the development of magnetic sector ICP-MS, multicollector ICP-MS, time-of-flight ICP-MS, and triple-quadrupole ICP-MS, as well as developments in the coupling of laser ablation (LA) and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to ICP-MS. This article surveys these developments and looks to the future.
