The article discusses the development and applications of multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICPMS) intrumentation. The purpose of MC-ICPMS is to simplify measurements resulting from thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS) by merging the favorable characteristics of an ICP source with the precision that can be achieved with mutlicollector array. MC-ICPMS intruments are frequently used for high precision measurement of isotope ratios.
