Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GD-MS)

Direct analysis of trace elements in high-purity conductive materials

Providing complete material characterization mainly for metallurgy, the Thermo Scientific Element GD Plus GD-MS system features a fast glow discharge ion source in a high-resolution mass spectrometer. The ideal tool for the direct analysis of high purity conductive and semi-conductive materials, the system can detect and routinely quantify almost all elements present in a solid sample at or below the ppb range.
