The article focuses on double-focusing inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (DF-ICP-MS), one of the most powerful analytical techniques for elemental and speciation analysis in biological materials. The advantages of ICP-MS technique are: Low detection limits, multielemental capabilities, ability to make isotope ratio measurements, simple to interpret spectra, wide linear dynamic range, high sample throughput, and easy coupling to chromatographic systems. The article compares DF-ICP-MS and collision and reactions cells ICP-MS technique for elemental and speciation analysis in biological materials.
