Given adequate precision, the better the sensitivity, the better the detectability

Utility of ICP-MS and LA-ICP-MS

Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is mainly used for rapid, precise  and accurate trace (<1000 ppm) element determinations in liquid and solid samples, but other applications include isotopic determinations and speciation studies.

The power of modern ICP-MS resides in its ability to rapidly measure trace elements at very low detection limits (to sub parts per trillion levels) as well as minor and major elements (at parts per million levels) in the same analytical run on suitably diluted samples.
