Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)
Teledyne CETAC’s HDIP is HDF-based image processing laser ablation software for ICP-MS.
Ten times more sensitive than current techniques, the size exclusion chromatography-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry technique allows, from a blood serum sample, the simultaneous detection of different biomarkers related to cancer.
A new range of solvents for high-sensitivity analytical applications including hyphenated techniques.
Analytik Jena has introduced the PQ LC HPLC module for its PlasmaQuant MS ICP-MS system.
The Thermo Scientific iCAP TQs ICP-MS system has been enhanced with improved data quality and performance through a combination of cold plasma operation and triple quadrupole interference removal. The system requires minimal user maintenance and includes a fully inert sample introduction system, a dry pump for clean room environments and a dedicated gas distribution unit for lab safety and maximum flexibility.
Edwards has introduced the air-cooled nXLi dry vacuum pump range, which provides a small footprint with quiet operation.
Nu Instruments has released Sapphire, a collision/reaction cell, multi-collector inductively coupled mass spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS). The instrument has a high-energy path that enables it to be used as a traditional multi-collector ICP-MS with no compromise in performance, as well as a low-energy path in which the ion beam is directed through a hexapole collision cell for the removal of the ICP-induced molecular species that interfere directly with the atomic ions of the same nominal mass of some non-traditional isotopes.
Easy-to-use system developed to support ultralow detection limits, and has improved interference removal capabilities. Users can switch between single and triple quadrupole modes within a single multi-element experiment. The instrument requires minimal user maintenance and includes QCell flatapole technology, a small volume collision/reaction cell with flatapole rods, and a dedicated gas distribution unit.
This work builds on our previous study of arsenic species in apple juice by incorporating several improvements to the methodology and exploring the analysis more deeply.
