For more than 30 years, CAIS has conducted high precision elemental analyses of environmental, biological, geological, and archaeological materials using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) spectrometry. Quantitative and qualitative elemental analyses are available using ICP mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). In 2016, CAIS expanded its analytical capabilities to include a multiple collector ICP-MS, dedicated to isotope ratios of metals, such as lead and strontium. CAIS is invested in providing the best results for your research. As such, we routinely refine and develop analytical protocols and extraction methods to suit our clients’ needs. Therefore, we offer every client free project consultation to determine the most suitable analytical methods and to create an individualized research strategy.
