The laboratory includes a Thermo Scientific™ iCAP™ 7200 ICP-OES instrument for analysis of trace elements in both liquid and solid samples.

The iCAP 7200 ICP-OES has high sensitivity and accuracy for trace elements present below ppb level and has broad spectrum detection allowing for the measurement of many elements at the same time. The set-up makes use of an internal standard for accuracy and elimination of matrix effects. The elements routinely analyzed are Na, Mg, Ca, K, Fe and Si in high salinity brines, and rutines for many other elements can be set up. The instrument is operated by the integrated Thermo Scientific™ Qtegra software.
