Minimizing interferences in the quantitative multielement analysis of trace elements in biological fluids by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry.


The determination of trace and ultratrace elements in biological fluids, including urine and serum, by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is discussed. Nonspectral interferences and their corrections by external calibration and calibrator addition are discussed in detail. External calibration with internal calibration and dilution is… (More)
