Elemental analysis has gained significance in the detection and quantification of trace metals in pharmaceuticals, herbal medicines and health supplements, foods and beverages and drinking water on account of stringent limits prescribed by global standardization bodies. Analysis in trace and ultra trace (sub ppb) levels became possible with the advent of ICP technique and ICP-MS in particular. This advanced technique afforded detection of different isotopes of elements and sample through put increased several fold as in a single run of about a minute duration it became possible to determine several elements in the sample matrix.
