Solid Sample Analysis Application Notes

    Few other techniques can challenge the ease-of-use or productivity of DC Arc when it comes to samples that are difficult or impossible to digest. Prodigy DC Arc performs elemental analysis of samples in their native form without sample digestion. Samples such as:
  • Ceramics and Glass
  • Metal Oxides, Carbides, Borides, Nitrides
  • Refractory powders such as SiC
  • Graphite Powder
  • Precious Metals & Traces in the Metals
  • Geological Materials
  • Nuclear Materials: Uranium Oxide, Plutonium OxideSoils, Sludge, Ashes
  • Paints



For some applications, such as the measurement of trace elements in high purity copper, DC Arc is one of the only techniques available that can provide the sensitivity and ease-of-use needed. DC Arc analysis of high purity Cu.

  Why choose DC Arc for Elemental Analysis?
For a few simple reasons, DC Arc is revered by those who use it. The reasons include:
  • Direct analysis of conductive and nonconductive samples
  • Eliminates sample digestions
  • Provides low limits of detection
  • Provides fast quantitative, semi-quantitative or qualitative analysis
  • Captures the full spectrum, performs elemental fingerprinting
  • Is inexpensive to operate
  • Is inexpensive to maintain
