ICP-MS Facility

  • The School of Earth and Ocean Science's ICP-MS and Laser Ablation facility is equipped with two quadrupole Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Mass Spectrometers (X-Series II, and PQ2+S), a laser ablation system (UP-213), and various liquid sample introduction systems.
  • The facility is available for elemental analysis of a wide range of solid and liquid materials (typical samples include surface waters, seawater, geological materials, environmental samples (such as soils and sediments), biological materials, and synthetic materials).
  • Any researcher with an interest in using the facilities is encouraged to contact the lab manager (Dr. Jody Spence; icpmslab@uvic.ca) to discuss potential analytical projects. Innovative or unusual applications are welcomed.
  • *** Please Note, the ICP-MS lab has now moved to our new location in the Wright Centre for Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Room B423.
