Washington College ICPMS Laboratory

We are a multidisciplinary group of faculty and students conducting research in environmental chemistry, geology and biology using inductively coupled plasma quadrupole mass spectrometry (ICPqMS).

Our instrumentation is funded by a grant from the Major Research Instrumentation Program of the National Science Foundation. We have additional support from Maryland Sea Grant.
