ICP-MS is the most powerful technique for the quantification of trace elements. The most severe limitation of ICP-MS is polyatomic interference with elemental signals. High mass resolution is the gold standard for the elimination of these interferences, enabling accurate and reliable quantitative multi-element analyses at trace levels, even with minimal sample preparation.

Multi-elemental Analysis
  • A multi-elemental detector with the speed to handle transient signals including HPLC, GC and laser ablation.
  • Interference-free measurement across the periodic table covers matrix components (mg∙L-1) to ultratrace element levels (sub pg∙L-1).
  • Highest sensitivity ICP-MS (at low resolution).
Flexibility and Accessibility
  • High mass resolution to access spectrally interfered isotopes and generate unambiguous elemental spectra.
  • High precision isotope ratios on non-interfered or interfered isotopes.
  • Hot and cold plasma conditions.
Element XR ICP-MS

Wide linear dynamic detection range is of immense importance in ICP-MS because it allows a wide range of concentrations to be analyzed in a single run.

Integrated Faraday Detector features:

  • Sample times as low as 1ms.
  • No decay time required after the measurement of high intensities.
  • Automatic switching between SEM and Faraday with delay times <1ms.
  • Wide crossover ranges (>2 orders of magnitude) between different detector modes allow accurate, automated cross-calibration.
  • Dynamic range from 0.2cps (SEM) to >1 x 1012cps (Faraday).
