Thermo Fisher launches high-precision isotope ratio MS system

The Thermo Scientific Neoma Multicollector ICP-MS (MC-ICP-MS) system combines innovative features from the field-proven technology of existing Thermo Scientific variable multi-collector instrumentation. A new level of automation with the integration of peripherals makes access to reliable, high-precision isotope ratio data easier and more efficient, leading to enhanced research productivity and novel applications. The new instrument offers the flexibility to quickly change between a broad range of isotopic systems, which is a key consideration for productivity in multi-user facilities.

Agilent Announces New, Innovative 7850 ICP-MS System

The 7850 uses a configuration that is optimized to handle the range of sample types measured in typical ICP-MS applications while ensuring data is free from common sources of error. Smart tools help customers through the initial setup of the instrument and required methods, and guides users through the typical ICP-MS workflow that is used to measure sample batches. Smart functions also assist with data review, eliminating the need for an ICP-MS expert to perform the important step of verifying data quality. The new 7850 is the smart way to ensure fast setup and streamlined analysis for great results in typical ICP-MS applications.

Bruker Launches the Q4 TASMAN™ Series 2 Advanced Spark-OES Metals Analyzer

The Q4 TASMAN Series 2 employs MultiVisionTM, the innovative dual optics concept, allowing the optimal choice between three variants to fulfill individual analytical needs. Additional benefits of MultiVision are increased reliability and reduced cost of ownership due to low argon gas consumption. Optimizations of the digital spark source SmartSparkTM and improvements to the coaxial argon flow design contribute to improved analytical precision, long-term stability, and shorter time-to-result. The pneumatically driven sample clamp on the spark stand ensures easy sample handling and accepts a wide sample variety for hassle-free operation.
