Innovative Solutions – Setting New Standards in the Analytical Performance of ICP-OES

High-resolution optics, high sensitivity, high confidence in results

The unique resolving power of the high-resolution optics guarantees unmatched sensitivity, accuracy and precision in real sample matrices. This well-established encapsulated echelle spectrometer utilizes a double monochromator set-up along with the latest high-resolution CCD detector and enables access to any emission line in the spectral window of 160 to 900 nm. With a spectral resolution of 2 pm @ 200 nm, even severe interferences in challenging samples can be resolved. Select the best emission line for your analytical task from over 43,000 lines and reveal the details of your samples. The availability of interference-free emission lines with high sensitivity allows for robust trace element analysis and highest confidence in results. Internal neon correction ensures a wavelength accuracy of less than 0.4 pm without laborious calibration procedures and allows for a system readiness within 15 minutes.

  • High flexibility through the largest selection of emissions lines
  • Superior accuracy thanks to interference-free analysis
  • Powerful detectability of trace elements in real samples
  • Fast measurement readiness

Intuitive handling – V Shuttle Torch

The convenient plug-and-play design of the fully demountable V Shuttle Torch simplifies maintenance and minimizes torch handling needs. Individually interchangeable torch components allow for maximum methodological flexibility while reducing the cost of consumables. All torch gases are automatically connected when the shuttle locks into a rail guide, on which it easily slides into the sampling position. This setup allows the torch to be mounted quickly with no need for alignment and increases the availability of the instrument. The vertical plasma orientation allows highly concentrated sample aliquots to be run and provides increased accuracy, minimizes blank values, and allows a wide range of samples to be analyzed without wet chemical pre-treatment. Excellent long-term plasma performance without clogging and soot formation is a reality, even for the most challenging samples.

  • Less torch handling and increased instrument up-time
  • Broad applicability and superior analytical performance
  • Cost-efficient operation
  • Torch mounting process with no need for alignment

Flexible plasma observation – Dual View PLUS

The analysis of trace elements and major constituents requires different plasma observation modes and the flexibility to apply any mode, radial and axial, to any emission line in a single method. Dual View PLUS enables the free selection of 2+2 plasma views in every sample for synchronous analysis of contents ranging from sub-ppb to high weight percent. The availability of automatic attenuators in any observation mode allow for the widest possible working range in ICP-OES. Spectral interferences from the cold plasma tail are eliminated thanks to the latest argon-neutral counter-gas technology that neither disrupts the stability of the vertical plasma nor reduces the length of its analytical zone. Dual View PLUS allows for robust trace element analysis with unique sensitivity and increased productivity due to minimal sample preparation efforts across all applications.

  • Optimized plasma observation modes without compromises
  • Argon-neutral counter gas for unique sensitivity
  • Detection from sub-ppb to percentage range in one run
  • Minimal need for sample preparation

Exceed the limit with the high-frequency generator

Reliable and stable plasma performance in any sample matrix remains a challenge in ICP-OES. The high-frequency generator of the PlasmaQuant 9100 is designed to run any sample, including the direct analysis of extreme matrices. In addition to a significant extension of the application range, method robustness, precision and productivity are also enhanced by lower matrix specific detection limits and reduced sample preparation needs. Utilizing a heavy-duty four-winding induction coil, the free-running 40 MHz power tube generator readily transfers power ranging from 700 to 1700 W with the highest efficiency into plasma of exceptional length. Its unique high-power settings with instant RF power output matching, required for industrial routine analysis of materials like brines, metal concentrates and volatile organics make plasma collapse a relic of the past. Due to its fast warm-up, the plasma is stable within minutes and allows for cost-efficient shift-work operation.

  • Outstanding plasma robustness for analyzing any sample matrix
  • Superior accuracy and precision by running undiluted samples
  • Maximum application flexibility
  • Lowest matrix-specific detection limits
