29 CASE STUDY: Ultra-Fast Agricultural Soil Analysis The soil samples were dried and ground 5 g of sample 20 ml of the 1M ammonium acetate solution was added. Samples shaken vigorously for at least 5 minutes and left to react overnight. Samples were then shaken again and filtered before being made up to 250 ml with de-ionized water. Sample extracts were analysed directly using the Sprint acquisition mode which further enhances the speed of the instrument. A locally sourced soil sample was extracted 5 times & each extract was analysed 10 times The total time required for these 50 repeats was 11 minutes and 35 seconds or 13.9 seconds per sample.

60 IC-ICP-MS analysis of As in Organic Brown Rice Syrup Media reports and scientific publications on the determination of arsenic (As) in foodstuffs have sparked renewed interest from consumer groups and politicians leading to responses from national regulatory bodies. Following the publication of a report on high As levels in organic brown rise syrup the United State Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that it was carrying out a study on As in rice and rice products that is due to report later in 2012.
61 Analysis of As in rice syrup Three different OBRS samples were sourced and prepared for analysis. A closed microwave digestion method was used. Preparation of the OBRS samples for As speciation analysis was achieved by taking 1.5 g of OBRS, adding 15 mL of 0.28 M HNO3 and refluxing for 90 minutes.
62 Speciation of As in OBRS IC-ICP-MS speciation analysis showed that the predominant As species in the OBRS samples tested was the toxic inorganic As(III) with over 80% of the total arsenic concentration (equivalent to 86 – 109 ng /g As (III)).
