Mission Statement

The UC Davis/Interdisciplinary Center for Plasma Mass Spectrometry (UCD/ICPMS) is dedicated to precise and accurate determinations of inorganic trace element and isotope abundances in geological, biological, agricultural, nuclear, environmental and engineering materials aimed at understanding the composition, rates and pathways of chemical transport and evolution in natural and laboratory systems.

UC Davis/Interdisciplinary Center for Plasma Mass Spectrometry (UCD/ICPMS) is a facility for trace element and isotope analyses with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). UCD/ICPMS is comprised of two laboratories.

• Quadrupole ICP-MS/Laser Ablation instrumentation is located in the Plant and Environmental Science Building (PES, room 3223)
• Multiple Collection (MC) ICP-MS/Laser Ablation instrumentation is located in the Earth and Physical Sciences Building (room 3236)
