We are working on EPA 6020 B method development for analyzing just Ca, K, Mg, Na in the precipitation water samples. How do we modify the spectral interference check solution (SIC) given in the 6020B method to verify any isobaric interferences? Thank you.

ICP-MS Sample introduction
Hi, we have an ICP-MS 7800 and was running normally until a routine service was done. Nebulizer and chamber were cleaned by following Agilent Instructions. When we started the instrument an error appeared indicating poor sensitivity. We prepared new tune solution (1ppb) and check masses, but the problem persist. No leaks were detected. Your guidance will be appreciated.
