In a previous blog post “How to prepare metal alloy samples for analysis by ICP-OES or ICP-MS”, my colleague Sue Evans Norris described the traditional methods for metal alloy sample preparation.  At ARMI, we are always looking for ways to improve the status quo and recently discovered a new sample preparation technology for the rapid digestion of metal alloys using short-wave infrared radiation.  This technology, promoted by a Canadian company called ColdBlock, claims their instrument can digest metal alloys faster than current techniques while eliminating the need for dangerous acids such as hydrofluoric and perchloric acid.
