Dynamic reaction cell inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry

Definition: A type of mass spectrometry where the sample is ionised in a plasma (a partially ionised gas---such as Ar---containing free electrons) which has been generated by electromagnetic induction. The sample is held in a dynamic reaction cell which contains a reagent gas that reacts preferentially with certain species, in order to allow only the analyte ions into the mass-to-charge analyser and the detector.
