Short summary
Knowing the size and elemental composition of airborne particles is necessary to understand their impact on human health. A widely used instrument for collecting size-segregated particles is the multi-orifice uniform deposit impactor (MOUDI). Laser ablation ICP-MS in imaging mode provided multi-elemental analysis of size-segregated particles with excellent sensitivity. The maps generated offered insights regarding the uniformity of the elemental distribution.
