Abstract

This paper presents a study where Statistical Process Control (SPC) are used as an internal quality control tool to monitor and assess the stability of instrumental blank samples for inorganic arsenic determination by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The use of Short Run control charts combined with process capability analysis revealed to be a suitable tool allowing to detect possible reagent or instrumental contaminations in a daily base.
