Headquarters:
Columbus, OH, US
Company Type:
Academic Core Facility

The Trace Element Research Laboratory (TERL) has world-class capabilities for elemental chemical measurements for an incredibly wide variety of applications in earth, environmental, chemical, biological, medical and materials sciences. Superb expertise and state of the art inductively coupled plasma based optical emission and mass spectrometry instruments are available. Most of the elements in the periodic table (other than C, N, O, F and noble gas elements) can be measured at concentrations from major (%) to ultratrace (part per trillion). Measurements can be made on solution samples, solids following digestion or, using laser ablation sampling, directly on solids.
Available Instrumentation

Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometers (ICP-OES) for elemental analysis of solutions (to ng/mL) or solids following dissolution
PerkinElmer Optima 3000DV ICP-OES
PerkinElmer Optima 4300DV ICP-OES
Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) for elemental analysis of solutions (to pg/mL concentrations), solids following dissolution, or solids sampled by laser ablation (4 to 200 um spot size) and then carried into the ICP-MS in a flowing AR gas
