Key features of the iCAP RQ ICP-MS

Our user-inspired hardware and software maximizes ease-of-use and streamlines workflows to achieve 'right-first-time' analysis, essential to all busy laboratories.

Increase throughput, minimize sample re-runs and save analysts' valuable time and effort with intuitive features and broad compatibility with automated accessories.

  • 'Get Ready' one-click set-up for easy, reproducible analysis
  • Cone change in as little as 60 seconds
  • Fast, easy operation with quick-connect sample introduction components

Comprehensive interference removal achieved with our innovative QCell flatapole design assures data accuracy. Using a single helium Kinetic Energy Discrimination (He KED) mode, all analytes can be measured at sub-ppt levels, even lithium and beryllium.

  • Measure all analytes in a single helium Kinetic Energy Discrimination (He KED) mode
  • In He KED mode, even lithium and beryllium can be measured at sub ppt levels
  • Excellent interference removal with high ion transmission
  • Reactive gas capability targets specific interference ions for challenging applications

Logical, problem-solving hardware ensures maximum up-time and minimum maintenance. Reliable plasma operation and high matrix tolerance let you run automated, unattended sampling, 24/7, with confidence. A choice of interface options, including our Robust Interface gives you the perfect choice for your sample type and analysis needs.

Interface When Why Who
Robust Long-term analysis of dirty, high matrix samples Minimal drift and reduced user maintenance Environmental and routine industrial applications
High Matrix Typical, everyday matrix types Best balance for sensitivity and matrix tolerance Food safety, pharmaceutical and drinking water analysis
High Sensitivity Advanced applications; e.g. laser, nanoparticles Best signal to noise ration and lowest detection Geoscience, advanced materials, research

Intuitive workflows and intelligent features offered with Thermo Scientific™ Qtegra™ Intelligent Scientific Data Solution™ (ISDS) software, simplify method development, increase throughput and minimize reruns. Productivity is enhanced through a ranfe of automated sample handling options, all managed within a logical dashboard interface.
