College of Natural Resources, UC Berkeley

The Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy Facility

Availability & Use

The ICP is available for use by all graduate students, staff and faculty within the University of California system and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.

Contact Paul Brooks for a half-hour meeting to discuss your ICP application. If your application is feasible with the facility's instrument then the user and Paul Brooks will reserve a day on the ICP for initial training and method development. The user will bring in their samples and standards they have made up from the facility stock solutions, and be trained and develop their method of analysis. After 2 or 3 uses of the ICP most users will be capable of using the instrument alone.
