Neptune Plus™ High Resolution Multicollector ICP-MS:

  • First with Retarding Potential Quadrupole Lenses (RPQ) for abundance sensitivity.
  • First to introduce a reliable moveable collector array, over 500 built.
  • First to report ultra-high-precision static isotope ratio measurements.
  • First for high-resolution MC-ICP-MS, enabling measurement of Si, S, Ca, Fe, Ni and many more isotopic systems.
  • First with stable and linear SEM and then CDD ion counters.
Neptune XT™ High Resolution Multicollector ICP-MS:
  • First with 1013 Ω Amplifier Technology, extending the benefits of Faraday cup detectors to smaller sample amounts. Now available with gain calibration and tau correction.
