Rapid test methods for plant analysis

Plant analysis provides important information about the nutritional value, quality, and current condition of plants. Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) are two of the most used laboratory techniques. But these techniques require tedious sample preparation, more expenses, and more time. This led to the development of rapid techniques which can help in on-site decision making.
